. . . in our Happy Hour group this afternoon

was a bit unsettled and sweaty.

He said he went to McDonald’s for lunch and

ate a kids’ meal and

Falls Kill the Aging

More than 36 million people report falling each year resulting in more than 32,000 deaths. One-third of seniors 65 years or older are among those who have fallen and 25 percent of those who sustain a hip fracture die within a year.

Falls are the No. 1 cause of injury for men 80 years of age and older and women over 70. Two-thirds of all falls occur around the house and individuals over 65 account for 60 percent of fall-related deaths.
