Fall Prevention

Please join us for a seminar  on “Fall Prevention”
October 12, 2017
6 – 7 p.m. Grizzly Hall
As parents and adults, we have all seen kids take many falls. From their first shaky steps to rambunctious high school basketball games, it is impressive to see them get back up and kept going, even with a few bumps or bruises. As we age though, falling is a far different issue.

According to the National Institute on Health, falls are the number one cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, loss of independence and injury deaths for older adults. If there is one thing you can do to optimize your loved one’s health and quality of life, it is recognizing the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute to falls, then taking actions to minimize their risk.
As winter months approach, let’s all be prepared to assure we are reducing the risk of fall injury!
