Falls Prevention Awareness Day

Coinciding with the first day of fall, the National Council on Aging has named September 22, 2017 as their tenth annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day. According to the NCOA the event has grown from 11 states in 2008 to 48 states and the District of Columbia this year. Their website has Falls Prevention Awareness Day resources, videos, marketing materials, and more.

 

NCOA hopes to help prevent falls by older Americans though education programs, lifestyle adjustments and community partnerships. Plenty of local organizations will be participating in the event as well. NCOA recommends reaching out to local senior centers, churches, community centers, fitness centers and other organizations to see what events are planned in your area.
