FINDING BALANCE NB
We recognize that there are many organisations and healthcare professionals who work hard daily to raise awareness of ways to prevent and reduce the risk injuries associated with falls among older adults. We encourage every New Brunswicker to join us in promoting Fall Prevention Month throughout the province by organizing a fall prevention initiative with the help of the different resources that can be found in the campaign toolkit.
Falls Prevention Month
Every November across Canada is Falls Prevention Month. In New Brunswick, the Finding Balance Campaign aim to inform seniors, caregivers, healthcare professionals and the public about the risks of slips, trips and falls, and steps one can take to prevent them.
The central theme of the 2016 campaign is “Stay Independent. Prevent Falls.” Join us! We can all play a role in order help raise awareness about fall prevention.
Be a part of this year's Finding Balance campaign by engaging your organization, community and friends. We encourage you to visit the Fall Prevention Month website for various ideas of activities you can do to get involved.
