The 7th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day will be observed on September 23, 2014—the first day of fall. This year’s theme, Strong Today, Falls Free® Tomorrow, seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults. Falls Prevention Awareness Day, sponsored by NCOA was first observed in 2008. Participation in the event has grown from 11 states to 47 states and the District of Columbia.
CHS is partnering with our facilities to sponsor facility wide and community outreach activities to offer Fall Risk Screens and Fall Prevention information to Elders.
