How to Prevent Falls in Older Adults

According to the U.S. Center of Disease Control and Prevention, one-quarter of Americans aged 65+ fall each year. That’s way too many – especially when you consider the high costs and serious injuries that follow. And the myths don’t help. Many think if they limit their activity, they won’t fall. That’s not true and we’ve developed a Fall Prevention Class, which proves that movement, strength, balance, coordination and confidence decrease chances of falling. Listen to our Fall Prevention Class Leader and Physical Therapy Assistant Heather Hansman and two Fall Prevention Class participants to learn more about the benefits this program offers. If you are interested in joining the classes please call (402) 506-9050.
