Program aims to keep elderly Ohioans from falling
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state wants to keep older Ohioans from falling and make sure their caretakers and others know how to help prevent tumbles.
Ohio’s Department of Aging says an older resident is injured in a fall every two minutes on average, resulting in an emergency room visit every eight minutes, two hospitalizations an hour and three deaths each day.
The agency has started a new statewide initiative called STEADY U Ohio to help get tips, resources and online risk assessments to the elderly, their families and caretakers.
The state wants to expand access to workshops to help improve balance, increase activity and reduce fears of falling.
