One of the biggest dangers of aging is a loss of mobility and strength. In fact, a 2013 study published in the Journal Clinical Interventions In Aging, found that strength and muscle mass decrease by between 30-50% as people go from the ages of 30 to 80. What’s more, people lose muscle at a rate of about 12-15% per decade after the age of 50.
For seniors, one of the biggest dangers in daily life is simple: falling.
While falling may sound like it’s no big deal, it can be disastrous or even deadly for seniors.
Today, 1 out of every four seniors falls at least once a year, but few tell their doctors or loved ones.
