Fall Facts

Yearly, thousands of older adults fall at home. Many of them are seriously injured, and some are completely disabled. Falls are often due to hazards that are easy to overlook but easy to prevent.

Home assessments are recommended for those who have fallen, who are at risk of falling, and who are frail or have cognitive impairments.

Falls Risk among Older Adults

It is estimated that at least one-third of people aged 65 years above fall at least once a year. Although many of these falls do not result in injury, they can cause:
  • Fractures of the hip and wrist
  • Dislocations of the hip and shoulder
  • Chest injuries including Rib fractures
  • Bruising and sprains
  • Head injuries and abrasions
  • Fear of falling can result in loss of confidence and reduced activities


What Causes People to Fall?

There are numerous factors that lead to the risk of falling in elderly adults, including:
  • Age-related changes in the body such as poor eyesight, cognitive loss, slowed reaction time, and numbness in the lower limbs
  • Muscles weakness and stiffening joints
  • New health problems
  • Side effects from medication, especially if patients are taking 5 or more medicines
  • Reduced physical activity
  • Sensory, unsteadiness, and balance problems
  • Poor diet and not enough water drinking
  • Low calcium levels that increase the risk of having a fracture if you do fall
  • Sore feet or unsafe shoes
  • Fall and slip hazards like rugs or floor mats, uneven or wet surfaces, and poor lighting
  • A short-term illness, such as the flu or another infection, or recovering after surgery or a recent hospitalization may also temporarily increase your risk of falling.

Fall Prevention In The Home

Falls in older adults are not inevitable, contrary to popular believes, and can be prevented in most cases. Some risk factors for falls are quite easy to change and, in the incidence of fall happening, the severity of injuries can be reduced.

It is essential to ensure a doctor’s visit if a person is feeling unsteady or has experienced a fall, even one that didn’t lead to any injury. Falls can be an indicator of an underlying health problem.
