for Older Americans Month 2014 is Safe
Today, Healthy Tomorrow. Older adults are at
a much higher risk of unintentional injury and even death than the
rest of the population. In fact, 756 older adults in North Carolina
died in 2012 as a result of an unintentional fall and a total of
1,689 older adults died of an injury-related death. Please take
time to review and implement safety measures for older adults and
help ensure a Safe Today, Healthy Tomorrow!
