Falls Among Older Adults

There are more people age 65 and older in Washington hospitalized for injuries due to falls than the number of people, of all ages combined, hospitalized due to motor vehicle crashes.

Resources available on the Department of Health Injury Prevention website include an injury prevention program report and an information guide for staying active and independent for life.
