‘An ounce of prevention’: May is Older Americans Month

June 1, 2016

In recognition of Older Americans Month in May, National Safety Council President and CEO Deborah A.P. Hersman blogged about the top risk to older Americans: falls. She shared a story about her mom almost falling during a family hike in California, and notes that “Our parents looked out for us when we were younger. Now it’s our turn to assess the risks in their lives.”
