At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fire or falls compared to the population at large. Thirty percent of people age 65 and older are involved in falls each year, the leading cause of death from unintentional injury in the home.
Our presentation focuses on 16 safety messages – eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention. Whether living independently or in a care facility, participants learn to prevent falls and remain safe from fire by changing or modifying behaviour, habits and environment.
