Many older adults believe falling is a normal part of the aging process. The winter months can also increase one’s chances of being injured, but by following certain safety guidelines, falls can be avoided. The St. Vincent Trauma Center staff is helping older adults avoid injuries due to falls by hosting its “Standing Together to Prevent Falls” event.

Participants will receive information about home safety tips, how proper nutrition can help prevent falls, the important role vision plays and how certain exercises can improve balance and coordination. St. Vincent pharmacists will be available to review medication lists to determine how they might contribute to the risk of falls in addition to a question and answer period following the presentation.

This event is free and lunch will be provided. Registration is required by contacting Mary Raley, Injury Prevention Coordinator, St. Vincent Evansville, at 812-485-6827 or
