Join Us for Falls Prevention Awareness Day

This year’s Falls Prevention Awareness Day will be taking place from 10:00am to 12:00pm on September 22 in the Great Hall of the Massachusetts State House. The event will feature speeches by State Senator Richard Moore and Executive Office of Elder Affairs Secretary Ann Hartstein.

Once again, clinicians, community activists, state officials and honored guests will gather to raise awareness that falls are both common and costly. Efforts are in place in our state to introduce falls prevention activities across the health care continuum and into the daily lives of older adults. Join the Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition and our experts to help prevent falls across all settings. Presentations will be made by the VNA of Boston and other providers with falls prevention programs.

Attendance is free and there is no registration for the event. Simply RSVP to James Fuccione at HCA (jfuccione@thinkhomecare.org) or Alissa Weintraub at Mass Senior Care (aweintraub@maseniorcare.org).

The mission of the Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition is to promote healthy lifestyles, behaviors and strategies to reduce the incidence and severity of falls and fall related injuries across the lifespan in Massachusetts.
