Protecting Yourself From Falls: Free Event

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.
