Top 5 Elderly Fall Reasons

  1. HEALTH. Memory, eyesight, balance and poor hearing can all lead to the increased risk of falling.
  2. MEDICINES. When medicine is combined with a weakened physical state, elderly people are more likely to sustain a fall.
  3. POST-HOSPITAL RETURN. Any type of surgery or other significant medical procedure is likely to increase one’s risk of falling.
  4. SURROUNDINGS. Furniture, rugs, beds and even other loose objects such as shoes are responsible for countless falls each year.
  5. 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.
