Healthy Steps for Older Adults - Fall Prevention

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging offers this fall risk screening and prevention program to 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. The program is taught by Certified Workshop Leaders and consists of two workshops, approximately 2-hours each in length, held on one day or two days within the same week. It is available in both English and Spanish.

Healthy Steps for Older Adults (HSOA) addresses many common causes of falls:

    • Environmental safety
    • Balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance exercises
    • Nutrition
    • Foot health
    • Sensory deficits (vision/hearing)
    • Side effects of medication
    • Health status/disease states, including substance use
    • The need to maintain an active lifestyle
    • Social connectedness
    • Mental and spiritual well-being
A list of ongoing and upcoming programs can be found below.  Interested individuals can register by calling the contact information for the session they are interested in.  You may register for a program already in process.
