Today is Falls Prevention Day at the State House

The Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition, of which MHA is a member, is holding the 12th Annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day event at the State House today, Monday, September 17. If you are in Boston, stop by. The event is co-sponsored by the American Physical Therapy Association of Massachusetts and Benchmark Senior Living. In Massachusetts, in one year, more than one in four community-dwelling older adults will fall and of those who fall, over one in three will be injured. However, most falls are preventable through some very simple lifestyle changes. Learn about them at this event. For more information about the MA Falls Prevention Coalition, click here.
