Today is Falls Prevention Awareness Day

This year we are highlighting the need for education and action because falls don't have to be a normal part of aging. Follow this link to find out more about the dangers of falls and to download materials you can use to help get the word out in our community.

Every 20 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall, and every 13 seconds an older adult is treated in an emergency department for a fall-related injury. Help us educate older adults and the people who care about them so that we can make a difference in Colorado.
