Brown County Prevention Coalition: Fall Prevention
Fall prevention awareness among older adults in Brown County.
You Can Help Prevent a Fall
- 25% of people over the age of 65 fall every year
- On average, 23 people per day are seen in our Green Bay Emergency Departments due to falls
- Falls can lead to loss of independence, disability and even death – they can be prevented!
You, your church, and/or your organization’s older adult members will benefit from learning about how to prevent a fall so they can stay healthy and active. We’d appreciate you looking over these resources to see how you can get this important Fall Prevention message out to others.
