The first day of fall marks Falls Prevention Awareness Day. Sponsored by the National Council on Aging, the day is an opportunity to learn how to prevent fall-related injuries that affect older adults. 

One in three adults over the age of 65 falls every year. The leading cause of injury-related death among the elderly is due to a fall. 

These statistics are scary, but many accidents can be prevented.
