The Home Care Alliance, as part of the Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition, is co-hosting the third annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day in the Great Hall of the Massachusetts State House from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on September 22.
Several state elected officials and elders advocates will speak and many more will attend. Click here to see a flyer for the event. For more information on state efforts to prevent accidental falls among the elderly, click here.
The event also coincides with a public hearing in front of the Joint Committee on Elder Affairs, which will be held the next day (Sept. 23) at 10:00 am in hearing room B-1 of the State House. The Alliance is looking for members who are interested in testifying on behalf of Senate Bills 317 and 318, which deal with a number of initiatives from education to the intensifying of services that will help reduce falls.
If any are interested in submitting written or verbal testimony in support of Falls Prevention legislation, please contact James Fuccione at the Alliance.
