Falling is NOT a normal part of aging; however, every 18 seconds an older adult is emergently treated due to a fall. Up to 75% of these injuries may be prevented. Falls 2.0 builds on the knowledge base learned in Falls Part One. This second interactive conversation engages your understanding and presents information to help prevent falls in the home.
