It’s important that older adults and their loved ones take precautions to guard against falls or accidents that result in head trauma. Older adults can be more susceptible to falls that result in brain injury. In turn, head trauma may lead to a stroke. While falls may cause more obvious physical injuries such as a broken hip or fractured arm, there are signs and symptoms of head trauma that may be less obvious — but no less serious and in need of prompt medical attention.

Griswold Home Care has compiled a list of resources designed to educate older individuals and their caregivers about brain injury and head trauma symptoms in adults. Discover more about brain injury concerns, as well as how to differentiate and identify stroke symptoms in men and women following any head trauma. Please check out these articles to learn more about signs you should be aware of, as well as preventative tips.
