While Falls Prevention Awareness Week takes place from September 22 – 28, we believe it’s important enough to warrant an entire month of education! As a result, Golden West Senior Living will partner with Boulder County Area Agency on Aging to bring awareness to prevention, preparation and actions to take against preventing falls.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-fourth of Americans aged 65+ fall each year, and falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults. Join us for a program, exercise class or educational seminar in the month of September to take steps toward falls prevention. And we’ll be giving away prizes! With an entry for every event you attend, you’ll be entered in to a raffle to win YakTrax, walking sticks, pedometers, massages, acupuncture sessions, and much more. One lucky person will win a ride in a Boulder Fire-Rescue fire truck!
See the below schedule for details! If you have additional questions or want to RSVP for an event, please contact Andrea Pappas Merrill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-939-0876.
