Balance and Fall

As of March 2022, falls were the leading cause of hospitalizations for people 65+ in Canada according to the Public Health Agency of Canada. These falls are the cause of 95% of all hip fractures. It is reported 30% of all Canadians over 65 will experience a fall in a year, jumping up to 50% of Canadians aged 80 years or older. The chances of falling increase with health conditions such as dementia as 50-80% of these individuals will fall this year. With these staggering statistics, it is important to recognize fall predictors, outcomes, and preventions to help keep you safe from falling.
