November is Fall Prevention Month
November 1, 2016
Every November across Canada is Falls Prevention Month. As we grow older, the risk of a fall increases. 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.” 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. For various resources and ideas of activities you can do to get involved, we encourage you to visit the Fall Prevention Month website at www.fallpreventionmonth.ca.
