Dr. Denise Bonnin shares the easiest way to prevent falls in seniors. A simple fall for someone can have a huge impact on the life of a senior. Broken bones, head trauma, even the loss of independence are all very real consequences. Many seniors suffer broken ankles and hips which can lead to a long, devastating hospital stay. The side effects from surgery alone can lead to a downward spiral. 

In addition, many seniors lose their independence after a serious fall. After suffering broken bones, surgery and possible head trauma, many families may want to move their loved one to a more supervised facility or even their own home. This can cause depression and angst.

Dr. Bonnin shares an easy, comfortable way to help seniors improve their stability and help prevent falls. If you or someone you love is at risk of falling, call our office to gain stability and peace of mind!
