|Not this kind of fall|
My mother in law, in her late 80's, has fallen a number of times, too. Her last fall lead to some two months of physical therapy.
My heart sinks every time I hear of a senior falling.
Today, I found out someone I know had a death in her family late last week. Her relative, 93, was active, still playing golf and still enjoying life - until he fell down a flight of stairs and broke his neck.
You don't have to be old to have this happen to you. Someone I went to high school with lost his son a couple of years ago in a freak fall. The son left a wife and two children, one then unborn.
I was just thinking about how I was starting to slack off on the exercises I was taught in this class. But then I remember how I couldn't even balance several steps on an imaginary tightrope without having to grab a support.
My posts two years ago discussed what I had learned, and showed some of the exercises, which can be viewed on You Tube (filmed by professionals).
I'm thinking of reposting some of these posts. Here are a couple of my past "falling" posts:
The Non Persistance of Vision
The Return (last year, when I thought about starting the feature up. It didn't last long.)

What do you think? Is falls prevention a topic you are interested in?
