Stop Falls in Stanislaus County

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults. To help make an impact to prevent falls in Stanislaus County, the Foundation has awarded $1500 to print updated Fall Prevention Resource Guides to be distributed throughout the community.
