Falls is the most common cause of injury (fatal and non-fatal) among seniors. One in every three seniors over 65 years old fall. Hopefully, none of your family members is included in this statistics. Many do not even talk about it. CDC reports in 2013, 2.5 million nonfatal falls among older adults were treated in emergency departments and more than 734,000 of these patients were hospitalized. In 2012, the direct medical costs of falls, adjusted for inflation, were $30 billion.
