Will You Remain Independent?
Children strive to grow up and become independent. Once we gain that independence, we work hard to remain that way. Unfortunately, older adults often lose their independence as they age. Falls are the leading cause of loss of independence: the reliance on assistive devices, such as canes, walkers, or wheelchairs; the fear of falling again; muscle weakness making walking, climbing stairs, or even standing from a chair difficult.
