Exercises that Help Prevent Falls in Seniors


Falls are the leading cause of physical injury and traumatic brain injury in seniors. Senior loved ones with a disability or medical condition, such as visual impairments, neuropathy, dementia, acute illness, and cardiovascular disease, have a higher risk of falling.

Fortunately, there are plenty of things that you can do to protect your senior loved ones from falling. One is by encouraging them to do regular strength exercises and balance exercises. These exercises will help improve their strength, balance, and flexibility and reduce their risk of falling.

Here are some great exercises for your senior loved ones that can help prevent falls:

  • Leg bends
  • Knee bends
  • Stretching the back of your leg
  • Strength training exercises
  • Balance exercises
