Fall Prevention (Part 1 of 3)
Because A Fall Can Change Everything

Miriam was living the active life of a healthy retiree when one fall changed everything. Before the fall she was driving, meeting friends for lunch, volunteering at the library, and even playing an occasional game of tennis with her oldest daughter. She still lived in the home she had purchased with her husband 52 years earlier and where they had raised their three girls. Her girls now had families of their own and since her husband had passed away two years ago, she now shared her home with her faithful golden retriever, Shelby.
