About Us


This website provides information on how to prevent falls among older people.

One in every four people 65+ will fall this year.

Falls are NOT a natural part of aging, but are on the rise.

Three topics that you should discuss with your healthcare provider annually:

  1. Have you fallen in the last year?
  2. Do you feel unsteady when standing or walking?
  3. Do you worry about falls?
