The leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries in older adults are falls. Roughly 20 – 30% of falls result in significant injuries such as hip fractures, broken bones, and head injuries. These injuries reduce mobility, independence, lead to nursing home admissions, and increase the risk of premature death.
