Falls are a major cause of death and/or disability for people over 65. Learning about fall prevention is important, of course, but it is equally important to know how to fall to reduce the impact and incur the least possible injury. A few quick tips to follow when falling are: protect your head, turn to your side as you fall, keep your arms and legs bent, relax, roll out of the impact, try to spread out the impact of the force of the fall, and step into the fall. In this post, I have included a very informative, easy to understand, illustrational resource that educates in much greater detail about how to fall safely.
