The National Council on Aging celebrates its 10th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day (FPAD) today, Sept. 22, 2017—the first day of fall.
This notable milestone event raises awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults. Review the NCOA provided info graphic 6 Steps to Prevent a Fall.
If the risk of falling is something that has kept you from participating in activities you typically enjoy, check out Club Bethesda’s Matter of Balance class or be sure to attend October’s Bethesda Therapy Open House on October 12 for a free balance assessment! Keep watch for further information on our open house as well as other fall prevention tips!
