"We are excited to partner with Phoenix Hipwear to mitigate fall risks for our residents. We know from research that the risk of hip fracture is reduced by nearly 3-fold by wearing a hip protector at the time of falling. We also know that, on average, older adults only survive an average of 18 months after a hip fracture occurs. Knowing this, we are pleased to offer Phoenix Hipwear to our residents and families as a critical part of our falls program."
