Mon, April 24, 2017, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM CDT
The STRAC Regional Fall Awareness Lengthens Lives (FALL) Program emphasizes the importance of identifying and decreasing fall hazards through routine exercise, eye care & medication management.
Injuries from falls can result in fractures, head injuries, pain, long-term rehabilitation and death. Oftentimes, multiple complications can occur after a fall that can lengthen recovery time. It’s important to know that FALLS ARE PREVENTABLE. Simple strategies can reduce the risk and severity of falls, allowing older people to live longer and enjoy a more productive and fulfilling life. Our goal is to make a positive impact in the community by reducing the incidence of falls and improving health through education, intervention and collaboration.
