Falls Prevention Picture

Join us in November 

Falls are a serious issue for older adults. One in three older adults fall each year. Older Canadians are more likely to suffer an injury from falling than the rest of the population1. Canada spends $6.2 billion per year addressing fall-related injuries despite the fact that falls in older adults are predictable and preventable2. We are declaring November 2015 to be a month where we pool our collective efforts to prevent falls and injuries from falls in older adults. Let’s raise the profile of fall prevention and help everyone see their part in keeping our seniors healthy and active.  Click here to download the toolkit.

It takes a community to prevent a fall. We all have a role to play!
