The primary goal of the Fall Prevention Program is to reduce and/or prevent the number of falls among at-risk low-income seniors. We employ a multi-pronged approach proven to be the most effective strategy to address the range of issues that leads to falls:

  • P1100255

  • 20210922-_D3_0484

  • BEHAVIORAL. We educate and raise awareness about: falls and fall prevention, sedentary lifestyle, medication management, and better eating habits.
  • PHYSICAL. We offer fall prevention skills-building training sessions that help to develop strength, improve mobility and balance and increase hand-eye coordination.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL. We make suggestions during class and workshops for simple changes to their home environment i.e. grab bars, smoke alarms, stair railings, and hand held showers.

Why?

  • Falls can be a common occurrence for seniors.  In 2019, emergency rooms recorded 3 million visits by older adults due to falls (CDC 2022).
  • Older adult falls cost $50 billion in medical costs annually, with ¾ paid by Medicare and Medicaid (CDC 2022).
  • With 1 in 4 Americans 65+ falling each year, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults (NCOA 2022).
  • Falls can be prevented with proper intervention. We will show you how!

 

Participants must:

  • Be 60 years or older.
  • Be at-risk for a fall. Fallen in past or have poor balance.
  • Be approved by personal doctor to participate in group exercise class.
