HEALTHY STEPS FOR OLDER ADULTS
Falls Prevention Workshop - Fall Risk Screening & Education Class
The Healthy Steps for Older Adults Falls Prevention Initiative : The Pennsylvania Department of Aging offers this falls prevention program for adults 50 years of age and older. The program is designed to raise awareness of falls, introduce steps on how to reduce falls, improve overall health, and provide referrals and resources. It is available in both English and Spanish.
"A major breakthrough for our community was because of the Healthy Steps Program. Our staff opened a center on a Saturday to integrate Latino and non-Latino participants. It is an exciting new beginning for our Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and the elder Latinos of our service area. It was one of the most wonderful programs that we have had. One gentleman approached me afterward and thanked me for helping the Latino community.”
"This program was just the incentive I needed to exercise more and reevaluate some things at home to reduce my risk of falling."
