KEEPING YOUR INDEPENDENCE
Virtual Trek Around New Brunswick
To help raise awareness about fall prevention during the month of November, Finding Balance NB is glad to be able to continue to support the Virtual Trek around New Brunswick.
Throughout Fall Prevention Month, participants use their Activity Journal to note the number of steps and/or the amount of physical activity in minutes that were completed each day. At the end of the month, the number of steps taken during each week can be added to calculate the total number of steps taken during the month.
In addition, participants are encouraged to reflect and discuss the four main ways to prevent falls during the month of November, one for each week of the month: Staying Physically Active, Watching Your Steps, Checking Your Medications and Speaking Up About Concerns.
We hope you join us this November. This is a great opportunity to get more physically active while learning about fall prevention together. For information about how to get involved in the Virtual Trek, please consult the sections below.
