Brain Injury Awareness
According to the Brain Injury Awareness Association over 3.5 million people are diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) every year. The CDC reports that 1.7 million of those people are Americans and adults 75 years old and older have a higher rate of TBI than any other age group. Those numbers are staggering! How is this happening?
The biggest risk factor for older Americans is falls.
At Synergy North Georgia we offer free In Home Safety Assessments to seniors to help check for fall risks and educate them about the many ways the CDC recommends to prevent falls and TBI in Older Adults.
Please call Synergy North Georgia at 770-783-2323 to schedule a Safety Assessment for your loved one. We can help them understand the risks and help them to maintain their independence.
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month so take the time to prevent it in your loved one.
