Older citizens reminded of prescription safety PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS - STEADY U Ohio, the statewide falls prevention initiative, and Ohio's Best Rx program, which provides prescription drug savings for more than 1.6 million Ohioans, have partnered to stress the role that proper prescription medication management can play in keeping older Ohioans safe.
May is Older Americans Month, with the theme: "Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow." By adopting and maintaining healthy habits, including an open dialogue with your doctor and pharmacist, you can avoid many risk factors that can lead to a fall and injury.
"It is not an exaggeration to call falls among older Ohioans an epidemic. While residents age 65 and older make up 13.7 percent of our population, they account for more than 80 percent of fatal falls," said Bonnie K. Burman, Sc.D., director of the Ohio Department of Aging, which leads the STEADY U Ohio initiative. "The good news is that falls are not a normal part of aging - most falls can be prevented with minor changes to home, health and habits, including increased awareness of the ways that the medicines we take, and how we take them, may increase our risk."
