November is Senior Falls Prevention Month. Finding Balance NB, in collaboration with the NB Trauma Program, will be launching campaigns this November to bring awareness to injury prevention initiatives for seniors, and support initiatives to promote falls prevention in the community.
The focus of Senior Falls Prevention Month 2017 will be #KeepActive! Together, we can empower seniors to reduce their risk of falling by keeping active. Did you know that falls account for approximately 85% of injury related hospitalizations in seniors? Furthermore, NB has one of the highest populations of seniors across the country. It is important to take the necessary steps to encourage New Brunswickers to keep active and prevent falls.
