Trauma is one of the leading causes of death in patients over the age of 65. Due to decline in senses and functional ability, the elderly are particularly prone to falling and subsequent injuries.

How do we mitigate this problem amongst the elderly? Akram Alashari is here to discuss what we can do to help the caregiver give better care, whether or not it’s our responsiblity to help health care providers, how he is helping to others find a moment of peace when someone’s life is at stake and more.
