Publisher's Summary

With aging, people's risk for falling increases because their senses dim and nervous systems tends to deteriorate. Elderly people often suffer from weakened vision and the balance mechanism in their ears becomes less accurate. The sedentary lifestyle of theirs may lead to muscle loss, thereby leading to falls. In seniors, even a minor fall may at times lead to fractured bones.
Following the suggestions included here will help to prevent your seniors from innumerable common hazards that may lead to disabling or, in rare cases, fatal falls. These suggestions are sure to help seniors lead a safe life.
