10 Million Steps to Prevent Falls event on National Falls Prevention Awareness Day

September 22, 2016, 8:00am - September 22, 2016, 3:00pm

Falls among older Ohioans have reached epidemic proportions; one in three older adults will fall this year, and falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths among our elders. A single fall can change the life not only of the person who falls, but also his or her family members who may have to become a caregiver for their loved one. The good news is that falls are not a normal part of aging, and most falls can be prevented. We are asking community-based organizations and our senior centers to take part in 10 Million Steps to Prevent Falls by hosting a one-mile (minimum) falls prevention awareness walk for their staff, partners and consumers on (or around) Sept. 22, 2016. Last year, events ranged from four or five participants to more than 1,200. Your event can help prevent falls, regardless of the number of participants. Staff from AAA8 will be walking that day too! More information about how your agency can get involved is in the attached flier, and even more information is available on the STEADY U website (www.steadyu.ohio.gov). Once you have details for your agency’s participation, please visit the STEADY U website to register your event.
