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, 32 falls a day are reported by Brown County ERs, hospitals, and local EMS (excluding Urgent Care & Clinic settings)
- 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.
This interactive, online workshop is for senior age 60 and older that have fallen or have concerns about falling. Local experts cover a variety of topics to help reduce your risk of falls.
