Every year in Gwinnett County, there are over 3,400 visits to the ER by residents age 55 and older due to falls. This results in about two Emergency Room visits per hour, and the cost to the US just in terms of Medicare is staggering. Serious falls are NOT an inevitable part of aging. Learn how to protect yourself.
