The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of things. One thing that’s still the same; falling is NOT a normal part of aging.
Healthy Living for ME is committed to empowering all older adults in Maine to age well and stay falls free. We are partnering with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) to mark Falls Prevention Awareness Week on September 21-25, 2020.
Join NCOA on September 23, at 6:30 p.m., via Facebook, facebook.com/NCOAging, for a Falls Free Check-Up Chat with an occupational therapist, social worker, Gerontologist and physical therapist, to learn how you or an older relative, friend, or neighbor can stay falls free.
The event will feature a brand-new online falls risk assessment tool available at no cost to individuals across the country. Visitors toncoa.org/FallsFreeCheckUp can complete a short, 12-question survey that screens for the most common falls risk factors.
For more information about the National Falls Free Check-Up Chat, please visit facebook.com/HLforME or call us at 1-800-620-6036.
Registration is due by September 18 and must include all team player names and handicaps.
