Did you know?
• More than one-fourth of people age 65 or older fall each year.
• Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalization for trauma and death among older adults.
• 40% of people who enter a nursing home had a fall in the prior 30 days.
• Falls are not a normal part of aging!
Join this 7-week workshop where you’ll learn exercises and strategies to help prevent you from falling.
It will be led by two local Faith Community Nurses who aim to help you become more mindful of fall risks in an effort to support your overall well-being. In addition, local guest experts provide information on exercise, vision, safety, and medications.
