This program is for adults of all ages who have sustained a fall in the past, who have a concern of falling, and adults who want to prevent falls in the future. Falls are the leading cause of injury for people over age 65. This FREE program was designed to help individuals recognize their concerns about falling and the hazards in their home and community that contribute to falls.

The program is a 2.5-hour presentation that will discuss fall prevention topics such as home safety, safety in the community, talking with your physician, nutrition, the significance of exercise, vision and medications. There will also be a demonstration of specific exercises which address the issues of falls.
