Fall Prevention Awareness Week

Fall Prevention Awareness Week

Staying Fall Free

The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of things. One thing that’s still the same? Falling doesn't have to be a normal part of aging. 

The Y is committed to empowering all older adults to age well and stay fall free. We are partnering with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) to mark Falls Prevention Awareness Week on September 21–25, 2020.  

This is a perfect opportunity for older adults and caregivers in our hometown to learn how to prevent falls and take steps to reduce their risk.

Join us to learn how you or an older relative, friend or neighbor can stay fall free. Zoom meeting links and passwords can be found on our in the descriptions on our class schedule.
