Fall Prevention Awareness Week: September 24

September 24, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Each year, more than 12,000 older adults in San Diego County arrive at the hospital after a fall. You are more likely to fall if you take multiple medications, have low Vitamin D, get dizzy, have problems seeing, or have trouble walking and getting around. However, there are many things you can do to stay active, independent, and fall-free. That is why the California State Legislature has designated the first week of autumn each year to be Fall Prevention Awareness Week.  The San Diego Fall Prevention Task Force has been leading the way locally in education and resources to keep older adults from this type of harm. We have planned three events in locations around the County for Fall Prevention Awareness Week to educate older adults and caregivers on how to prevent falls:

Strong Today: No Falls Tomorrow

Each event will feature dynamic speakers, fall risk screenings, and exhibitors with local resources. All events are free – Participants should register by calling 1-800-827-1008
