"I read every page of this book and now truly believe there is much we can do to prevent falls for older adults. This book is full of pertinent information, is easy to read, and is divided into useful sections so you can look up what you need to know as a family caregiver to help prevent falls. It's a resource everyone who is concerned about an older person's safety should take the time to read."

-Maggie Marshall, Director of the Caregiver to Caregiver Network, SCRC, San Diego, California

"The most delightful thing about this book is that it emerges from the heartfelt interest on the part of the authors . This is all done in a very understandable manner . I have reviewed all the recommendations in this book and endorse them as consistent with modern, evidence-based medicine."
