FL News / Reduce Your Risk of Falling at Home

10.04.10 | Bob Price

There's an emerging health threat for seniors that not many people think about. According to the National Safety Council, more than a third of people over 65 will suffer a serious fall in their home this year. 20 percent of those people wind up in the hospital and 25 percent of seniors who suffer hip fractures, will be dead within a year.

Family Life News talks to Dr. Joseph Zuckerman at NYU hospital about the things the elderly can do to reduce their risk of suffering a serious fall.
