Ex-President Jimmy Carter, 95, fell for the second time within just a few days. In this accident, instead of just a bruised forehead, he suffered a more serious pelvic fracture. That familiar panic call from ads for a push-button emergency service can also apply to active seniors.
Whenever required to get into a vehicle and otherwise move quickly, you’re at most vulnerable for falling. Taxi, airplane, bus, train, flight of steps, cruise ship ladder all can be keel-over danger spots. Therefore, take your time to think for a moment before you safely make your move. If with a companion, plan ahead on situations where a helping hand ensures safety.
