What you need to know

​Unintentional falls among older adults are a leading cause of injury. Even falls without injury can cause fear of falling, leading to physical decline, depression and social isolation. Falls threaten older Nebraskans’ independence and safety and generate significant personal and economic costs.

Through evidence-based interventions and community partnerships, we can reduce the number of falls in Nebraska. DHHS Injury Prevention Program works with community partners to implement fall prevention programs.
