Falls are NOT a normal part of aging, and most falls can be prevented. That’s why New York State has joined 48 states across the nation to declare September 23, 2014 Falls Prevention Awareness Day!
Every 14 seconds in the US, an older adult is seen in the emergency department for a fall-related injury. You have the power to reduce the risk of falling in your home or that of your loved ones.
Please monitor this page for upcoming events and more information to help provide a safer environment for our seniors and minimize the risk of injury from a fall.
