The biggest threat to the independence of an older adult is a simple slip
and fall. Each year, one out of four Americans over age 65 will suffer
a fall, and nearly 30,000 die from their injuries. Many others are left
with a permanent disability that threatens their independence. Luckily,
many falls can be prevented.
Don’t let a bad fall change your life forever. Join us for a morning
of fall prevention classes and health screenings presented by our occupational,
speech and physical therapists during the county-wide Falls Prevention Week.
