Falls are responsible for 60% of injury related deaths in people over 65. 1 in 4 seniors who are hospitalized as a result of a fall will die within one year.

Dr. Feldman, PhD has published a children’s book, Safety Superheroes, Preventing Grandparents from Falling in an effort to engage grandchildren in their grandparents’ safety.
