November is fall prevention month

It takes a community to prevent a fall.
We all have a role to play!

Did you know? In Ontario, falls to older adults accounted for $1 billion in direct health care costs.

Fall Prevention Month encourages organizations to coordinate their efforts for a larger impact. Organizations in Ontario and beyond participate by planning activities and sharing evidence-based information on fall prevention. Together, we can raise the profile of fall prevention and help everyone see their role in keeping older adults active, independent and healthy as they age.
