Prevent a fall ... one step at a time - Genesys presents talk

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Every 15 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury. Falls are the number one cause of injury, hospital visits due to trauma, and death in people age 65 and older. It is estimated that one in three older adults falls each year. Many of these falls can be prevented!
Zach Landers, RN, manager of Genesys Trauma Services, will present a talk - preventing falls, one step at a time - at Genesys Athletic Club on Wednesday, March 19 at noon. He will talk about identifying problems and obstacles that can lead to falls, adding exercise and physical activity to reduce fall risk, improving balance and strength to avoid a fall, and correcting safety hazards in the home that can cause a fall.

If you would like to attend this talk - part of the Genesys Athletic Club's GAC Gold program for seniors - call 810-606-7509. Cost of $10 includes lunch.

Genesys Athletic Club offers a monthly Lunch and Learn with Friends lecture to help seniors improve and maintain their health. For a schedule of these sessions, call 810-606-7509.
