Falls Prevention

Take Control of Your Health: You Have the Power to Prevent a Fall!

Caregivers: Did you know that 1 in 4 adults aged 65+ falls every year?

 

Caregivers and those at-risk for a fall can be partners AND participants in falls prevention! Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans; they are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. The good news is that falling is not a normal part of aging.

 

Watch this webinar to learn steps you can take to prevent a fall and how you can be a partner in falls prevention. The webinar highlights helpful resources from the National Council on Aging’s National Falls Prevention Resource Center and information provided by the National Alliance for Caregiving.
