        2017-01-17: Falls Can Be Prevented

    Falls are the leading cause of unintentional injuries for those over the age of 60; one in three will have a fall every year. They often mean a trip to the emergency room or an injury serious enough to require a lengthy hospital stay and rehabilitation. Sadly, they often result in the inability to live independently. The good news is that falls can be prevented. Alayne Balke, Fall Prevention Program Manager at Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services, will discuss the common causes of falls, and the top three ways to prevent them. She will also talk about making behavior changes, what to do if a fall does happen and how to make a falls plan.
