Every second of every day an older adult falls. I was one of these statistics. In my excitement to prepare to have dinner with friends on their patio (after all, this is a pandemic), I was multi-tasking – carrying laundry down the stairs, my mind on my recipes and as my mobile phone rang in my back pocket, I reached to grab it. I should have been holding onto the rail. I should have been paying attention to the steps. I tripped and fell down the last 3 stairs and it was then that I knew that both my knee and ankle were injured.
