When watching television I noticed a commercial stating that falls are a major cause of injuries for seniors.
Well, I never strove to be a member of a statistic club like that, but it looks like I am one.
I am a senior and am quite weak as a result of my battle with cancer. I’ve had some real strange falls over the last three years. Once I go down, it’s a struggle to get back up.
I’m writing to tell those people who have stopped what they were doing and came rushing over to help me get up how grateful I am for your assistance and compassion.
It’s bad enough that I have a bunch of cuts and bruises, to say nothing about being embarrassed, but it shows me that we live in a truly compassionate, wonderful place, with very kind people.
I would like store keepers and such to take a look around their establishments and premises to see if there are any tripping hazards. It would help prevent many of these falls.
It’s no wonder I moved to this most wonderful town, it’s all about the nice people, and it’s no wonder we have a lot of seniors retiring here.
I’m so glad I choose to be a part of it all. Thank you Salmon Arm.
