Falls Prevention

Falls Prevention

One third of people over the age of 65 fall at least once per year, and around half of these are in and around the home. In this FREE one hour session on falls prevention, learn the reasons you may be suffering from falls and the steps you can take to reduce your risk of falling.

All attendees will receive information, including exercises to improve balance to take home.

Join us and learn how to fall-proof yourself!
