SENIORS FALLING INTO GRACE

Jul 15th, 2013 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Over the weekend, this 74 year old adult male took a tumble. Walking our 3 dogs along a familiar sidewalk, I tripped on a protruding sidewalk seam and went face down, experiencing a chin gash requiring a few stitches, a fractured right arm, abrasions on my knees not to mention the embarrassment that accompanied all of this.

With Sharon attending the dogs and trying to assist me, a young man, accompanied by his spouse and child, stopped to offer assistance, pick me up off the sidewalk and took me home less than a block away.

We made our way to the nearest Urgent Care Center, where two highly competent women attended me, took care of the immediate needs, did an x ray revealing my fractured arm, near the elbow, and assured us that none of the injuries had been life threatening.
