Elderly people often suffer from weakened vision and the balance mechanism in their ears becomes less accurate. The sedentary lifestyle of theirs may lead to muscle loss, thereby leading to falls.

Following the suggestions included here will help to prevent your seniors from innumerable common hazards that may lead to disabling or, in rare cases, fatal falls. These suggestions are sure to help seniors lead a safe life.

I've not fallen, and can stand up!

This book does in 10 minutes precisely what it say it will do, it provides 10 ways to prevent senior citizens from taking a tumble, busting their hips and suffering a slow recovery or dying. It is easy to follow, very straightforward., and there is no reason after listening to this that you will not significant;y decrease the risk of a fall if you follow directions.

Clinger narrates perfectly, he is crisp in his delivery, and very easy to follow. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like mewill decide based on my review.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this to all my STNA coworkers you have to be aware of the elderly falling on a daily basis.

What about Trevor Clinger’s performance did you like?

He was clear and loud so the book could be easily understood.

Really useful book!

This book was extremely helpful in helping me prepare living arrangements for one of my family members. I know falls can be sometimes fatal, so having the knowledge that this book provides can be life saving!
