Did you know that 1 in 3 Americans aged 65+ falls each year? Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries for elder Americans. Every September on the first day of fall, the National Council on Aging and the Falls Free Initiative work to promote Falls Prevention Awareness Day. The 10th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day will be observed on September 22, 2017, and Alice Home Care (formerly Peace of Mind Home Care) is hosting a day filled with free workshops and activities to celebrate one day early, on September 21st!
