Keep Your Independence

Falls prevention isn’t just about stopping falls before they happen. It’s about continuing to enjoy life’s simple moments; it’s about playing with our grandchildren and keeping up with old friends. Most of all, falls prevention is about keeping our independence.

Falls can result in injuries that limit your ability to move and to remain active and independent. Research tells us that 4 of every 10 nursing home admissions are the result of falling.

You can take steps to prevent this from happening to you. We encourage you to take advantage of all the resources on this site.
