Falls are a serious matter so pay attention to the risk 

October 25, 2020

Falling is a leading cause of injury-related emergency department visits in North Bucks.

Fall Prevention awareness in North Bucks helps address this public health issue.

"Falls can be more dangerous than they might seem. They can cause bruising, hip fractures, and head injuries. These accidents can even be fatal, especially for the elderly, which means seniors deserve extra attention to make sure they don't fall."

Look around your home and places seniors go and consider how those environments might impact them. Check for stairs without handrails, slippery bathtubs, uneven floors, loose rugs, and make changes to those places to provide a safe space for your elderly loved one.
