Falls Prevention

45% of trauma patients admitted to Upstate University Hospital were from falls.

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among adults 65 and older

Falls can be costly personally and financially

They threaten older adults’ safety and independence

Falling is not an inevitable part of aging

We partner with various community agencies to provide falls prevention programs.

We are available to meet with your group upon request to present fall prevention topics as well as provide informational booths at events.

To schedule, please call (315) 464-4773.
