Workshop Series in Carroll County Aims to Prevent Senior Citizen Slip and Falls

By Alpert Schreyer on April 11, 2012

MD Senior Slip FallThe Partnership for a Healthier Carroll County is hosting a series of workshops in Carroll County to prevent a major public health issue for adults ages 65 and older, according to The Advocate of Eldersburg and Sykesville. The county-wide Fall Prevention Series is on a mission to aid senior citizens in reducing the risk of falls, a very serious problem that is the leading cause of death in older adults and is the most common cause of hospital admissions for non-fatal injuries and trauma. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also reports that one in every three adults age 65 and older falls each year. Thus, after identifying this major elder health concern, the Partnership created the Fall Prevention Series to prevent falls in Carroll County.

The director of the McDaniel’s Center for Aging says the purpose of the series is to first identify a person’s risk factors and then educate them about how to best manage their risks. The series will be featured in all five of Carroll County’s senior centers on various dates throughout the month of September. Each senior center will have the following free workshops: “Exercises to Improve Balance,” “Preparing for a Medical Crisis,” and “Home Safety Tips for Preventing Falls.” The workshops will be presented by team members representing several groups including Caring Carroll, Central Maryland Rehabilitation Services, and Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland. Any senior citizens interested in attending should contact their local senior and community center.

A slip and fall accident, especially when one is older, has a high risk of leaving the victim with serious injuries that may require extensive treatment and rehabilitation. Following prevention and safety tips can help prevent a fall accident, but the negligence of another party may still put a person at risk. The slip and fall accident lawyers in Maryland at Alpert Schreyer, LLC can help you obtain compensation for your injuries if your slip and fall was due to the negligent actions of another person.
