Get Started in Your Community

This resource lists a number of activities that have been presented in urban and rural communities throughout Alberta to engage communities and educate seniors, and future generations of seniors, about the importance of preventing falls and about key falls prevention strategies.
A guide of this nature will continue to grow and evolve as we learn more about what works and activities underway across Alberta.
