Every eleven seconds, an older adult receives emergency room treatment for injuries sustained in a fall. Falls cause more than 2.8 million injuries every year, resulting in more than 800,000 hospitalizations. And in the next two years, as the population ages, financial costs from older adult falls are expected to reach $68 billion.
Sunset Village is holding a Fall-Risk Symposium on September 25, from 8:00 AM to 11:45 AM.
If you’re a physical therapist, occupational therapist, or licensed social worker, you won’t want to miss this educational event. Seating is limited, so register now.
