- HEALTH. Memory, eyesight, balance and poor hearing can all lead to the increased risk of falling.
- MEDICINES. When medicine is combined with a weakened physical state, elderly people are more likely to sustain a fall.
- POST-HOSPITAL RETURN. Any type of surgery or other significant medical procedure is likely to increase one’s risk of falling.
- SURROUNDINGS. Furniture, rugs, beds and even other loose objects such as shoes are responsible for countless falls each year.
- FEAR OF FALLING. Because the fear of falling places a psychological limit on daily activities, elderly tend to have reduced mobility and loss of physical fitness.
