Stepping On: Falls Prevention Workshop

It's estimated that one in three people age 65 and older fall at least once a year. Many of these falls result in broken bones and other disabilities, hospitalizations, and in some cases, even death. In addition to physical injury, victims of falls often lose their sense of confidence and become less independent. Falls among the elderly is a serious problem, especially right here in Wisconsin as our state ranks #2 for falls among older adults. The good news is that falls CAN be prevented!

Stepping On is a seven-week workshop using adult education to develop the knowledge and skills needed to help older adults prevent falls. It focuses on how strength and balancing exercises, medication management, home safety, footwear, vision, and mobility all play an important in fall prevention. The workshop:

- Increases awareness of fall risks
- Helps participants be more informed about the factors that contribute to their risk of falling
- Includes guest experts on certain topics
- Follows through on the use of prevention strategies after the workshop is completed
- Includes a follow-up "booster" class to review achievements
