Slips and falls now rank as the leading cause of injury deaths among people 65 and older, and Missouri’s rate of injuries related to falling is 31 percent higher than the national average.

Falls Prevention Awareness Week is September 21-25, 2020

Falls are not a normal part of aging, and are preventable. Missouri has a voluntary group called the Show Me Falls Free Missouri Coalition, comprised of more than 50 organizations that have joined to help prevent falls in Missouri.
