These exercises can help you take a stand against falls
Falls are a common problem for adults age 65 and older. But there are plenty of steps you can take to reduce your risk of falling.
These balance exercises are a great place to start.
For safety's sake:
SIT TO STAND
STAND ON ONE FOOT
As this gets easier to do, try looking from side to side as you walk. (Skip this step if you have inner ear problems.)
Avoid getting tripped up inside your home. Here's how to fall-proof the rooms in your house.
