The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of things. One thing that’s still the same? Falling is
NOT a normal part of aging.
Step Smart is committed to empowering all older adults in Southwest Florida to age well and stay falls free. We are partnering with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) to mark Falls Prevention Awareness Week on September 20-24, 2021.
This is a perfect opportunity for older adults and caregivers in our hometown to learn how to
prevent falls and take steps to reduce their risk.
Join us September 22 at 11 am for Virtual Injury Prevention Live Webinar to learn how you or
an older relative, friend, or neighbor can stay falls free.
The event will be followed by a 15 min Tai-Chi demonstration by the Area Agency on Aging and will feature a brand-new online falls risk assessment tool available at no cost to individuals across the country. Visitors to http://www.ncoa.org/FallsFreeCheckUp can complete a short, 12-question survey that screens for the most common fall risk factors.
