Hearing Loss and the Higher Risk of Falling

About This Event

  • Event Type:Classes
Details:

Hear how age-related hearing loss can increase your risk of falls and ways to prevent them. Presented by Aimee Langlois, PhD, retired audiologist.

The biggest threat to the independence of an older adult is a simple slip and fall. Each year, one out of four Americans over age 65 will suffer a fall, and nearly 30,000 die from their injuries. Many others are left with a permanent disability that threatens their independence. Luckily, many falls can be prevented. Don’t let a fall change your life forever. Join us for free online prevention classes during the county-wide Falls Prevention Week.
