Falls Prevention 101

Anyone can fall, but for older adults, a fall can cause a devastating loss of independence. Statistics show that one in three seniors will fall each year. Our presentation covers the factors that put us a risk of falling, and provides helpful tips about how to reduce the risk, including becoming more physically active, removing falls hazards from the home, and working to change hazards in the outdoor environment. Our group presentation is fun and interactive—you can even play fall prevention Bingo!
