Stop Falls Before They Stop You with Healthy Steps for Older Adults:

 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that:

  • Every 20 minutes an older adult in the U.S. dies from a fall.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury.

Many people do not know that FEAR of falling can actually become a self-fulfilling prophecy, putting us at an increased risk for falls.  The GOOD NEWS is that YOU can reduce your risk of falling and the Healthy Steps for Older Adults Program can help get you there.  Address your fears by educating and equipping yourself with the right tools, which can make a difference in your life and your risk for falling.

The County of Delaware Office of Services for the Aging (COSA) is working collaboratively with Crozer-Keystone Health System to Offer the Healthy Steps for Older Adults Program at Brinton Lake. This 2 session evidence-based program proven to help reduce the risk of falls among older adults will be held on Mondays, December 10th and 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Crozer-Keystone Health System’s Brinton Lake Facility, 300 Evergreen Drive, 1st Floor Conference Room, Glen Mills, PA 19342.  Must register by contacting Joe Miller at 610-447-2060.
