Fall prevention education at Green Hills
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Contrary to popular belief, falling is not a normal part of aging. Yes, the chances of falling can be reduced to prevent hospitalization, emergency room visits and even death.

 Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for those 65 years of age and over.

To help reduce the chances of falls, Green Hills Community is hosting an educational fall prevention event from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 23, National Fall Prevention Awareness Day with the theme of “Strong Today, Falls Free Tomorrow.” The event takes place in Foundation Hall on the Green Hills campus, 6557 US 68 South, West Liberty.

During the event, there will be fall screenings, educational tools, and a pharmacist to answer questions about medications that may increase chances of falling. There will also be an opportunity to sign up for “A Matter of Balance,” an 8-week program supported by the Ohio Department of Aging that emphasizes practical strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels.

Understanding how to reduce the risk of falling allows everyone to stay independent for as long as possible.

 For more information about the event, please contact Nita Wilkinson at 937-650-7146 or e-mail nwilkinson@greenhillscommunity.org
