St. Mary's Assists with Senior Lifestyle Safety
The SLIP injury prevention program is designed to address the needs of older adults.
Elderly persons are disproportionately at risk for poor outcomes following injury, and are rapidly growing in the overall population. The aging process affects visual, cognitive, and psychomotor skills, and even simple tasks of daily living can put older adults at risk for injury. These facts support the need for injury prevention programs like this one.
