Description:

Enjoy a lunch and conversation about fall prevention. Did you know that 1 in 3 individuals over the age of 65 will fall each year? Did you know that having had 1 fall puts you at risk for future falls? Find out how to reduce your risk of falling and ways you can prevent it. What environmental changes can make you safer? What to look for that puts you at risk for a fall? What equipment is available to decrease your risk of falls? How do you get up if you have fallen?
