About the Book

Have you fallen in the past or know someone who has? Do you have aging parents, or are you concerned about falling yourself? If the answer is yes, then this fall-prevention handbook is for you.

Roxanne Reynolds has spent the past ten years working with seniors and those with movement disorders. Because of her love for seniors and the fact that her own grandmother fell and broke both of her hips, she knew she had to try and do something to help prevent catastrophic falls so prevalent today.

In A Seniors Guide to Fall Prevention and Healthy Living, Roxanne outlines causes, diseases affiliated with falls, home safety, foot health, diet, nutrition, and activities that promote balanced movement.
