Beyond the video: Falling – facing the fear

Many older people have a fear of falling triggered by such things as:

  • An unfamiliar room, especially one with poor lighting
    Icy sidewalks
  • Recognizing the threat of a fall to their independence
  • Knowing what has resulted from other people’s falls
