ADT’s Google Plus Hangout: Senior Safety and Fall PreventionBy Home Security Source September 12, 2012 | 4:00 PMPosted in: Senior Safety, Personal Safety, Family
Did you know that one-third of
the population, over the age of 65, falls each year? Did you know that falls in
the elderly can be greatly reduced by simply getting the right kind of
exercise? Each year thousands of older Americans entrust their safety to
caregivers. Senior safety, especially fall prevention, continues to be their
number one concern. Join ADT’s senior care experts as we host a live question
and answer Google+ hangout created to give caregivers some fall prevention tips
and help them secure the safety of our senior citizens.
Thank you to everyone that tuned into ADT’s Fall Prevention Google Hangout!
