What the experts are saying.

"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." Dr Sandi Petersen DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, GNP-BC, PMHNP-BE, FAANP, Senior Vice President of Health and Wellness - Pegasus Senior Living
