Falls are the top cause of deadly injury in Hawaii, and it's especially critical for seniors.
There are three things seniors should know in terms of fall prevention -- what to do when you are falling, how to get up and what to do to prevent a fall in the first place.
At 15 Craigside, the new campaign for this Nuuanu retirement community is "Whoa Go Slow."
"I see the number one reason for falling is rushing," said 15 Craigside Wellness Manager Keleka Ho'okano.
Ho'okano takes the seniors through a series of exercises to prevent a spill.
"It's so important that we walk -- heel, toe -- because what happens, especially when we get older, is we start to drag our toes," said Ho'okano.
There's leg lifts to strengthen muscles.
"If you are falling, that muscle is going to help catch -- prevent you from actually going down," said Ho'okano.
There's a lot of ankle stretches to relieve tired joints and stepping exercises to improve balance.
