Did you know research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that home modifications and repairs may prevent up to 50% of home accidents among seniors, including falls that take place in older homes? Nearly 90% of older adults want to age-in-place and maintain independence in their homes according to AARP. Shana Lebanowski, Injury Prevention Coordinator will provide a home safety check list to reduce your risk of injury and provide a discussion on common injuries due to falls that might cause traumatic brain injury, concussions and hip fractures.
