How can National Safety Month make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about important safety issues like Aging in Place for our senior community. Did you know that injuries are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages – and they are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. But there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries. Spread the word and make a difference!
Each year, 1 in 3 adults age 65 and older will fall. Some of these falls will have a life changing impact. We can help educate you to spread the word.
