Falls can happen any time and any place, but most often they occur at home during everyday activities.
As we grow older, our body’s muscles can start to weaken and joints may become stiffer. These changes, among other risk factors, can increase the possibility of a fall as we age. Keeping active and exercising at a level fit for your fall risk is key to help prevent injuries due to falls.
Safe Communities has compiled lists of balance-enhancing/falls prevention classes for older adults in our community; they are categorized based on various fall risk levels.
