Prevent Falls and Be Safe and Steady at Any Age on March 7

 
  

The Valley Hospital will host a free PrimeTime community health program, Safe and Steady on Thursday, March 7 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at The Valley Center for Health and Wellness, 1400 MacArthur Boulevard, Mahwah.

If you’re a senior or you’re concerned about the safety of a loved one, you won’t want to miss this interactive program on how to prevent and avoid falls. Hear from our experts to learn about why falls happen, how to recognize and reduce falling risks and selecting the right prevention strategies for you or your loved one. Learn how to be safe and steady at any age!

A fall can be scary for someone of any age, but for seniors, they are especially worrisome and potentially dangerous. In fact, among older Americans, falls are the leading cause of injuries and hospital visits due to head trauma, broken hips and more. The risk of falling and fall-related injuries also increases as we get older, as about one out of four seniors ages 65 and older fall every year.

What: Safe and Steady

Who:  Kristin Ryffel, P.T., DPT, Supervisor, Outpatient Physical Therapy
Eileen Emmanuel, MPH, Exercise Physiologist

When:  Thursday, March 7 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Where: The Valley Center for Health and Wellness, 1400 MacArthur Boulevard, Mahwah.
