Risk for Falls

Am I at Risk for Falls?

How do I determine my personal degree of “risk for falls”? Should I worry about falls at all? Do I need to use a cane or a walker? How would I know? We all face these questions as we age.

My Background:

This Expert Insights team consists of “citizen analysts” from the Longevity Explorers and Tech-enhanced Life, guided by a volunteer “expert panel” with deep domain expertise relating to older adults and fall avoidance.

Falls are a major problem for seniors who want to “Age in Place”, and there have been volumes written on topics like how to fall proof your home, how to avoid falling and the like. However when we went out and searched for the best answers to the sorts of questions our circles of older adults were asking, we found a bewildering array of different content, and had a hard time finding just the right set of easily digestible information. This research project is designed to identify and make easily accesible a set of “Curated Insights” from around the web on Falling.
