New Lunch and Learn Program with NovaCare

Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans aged 65+ falls every year? Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. Falls are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. However, falling is not an inevitable part of aging. Through practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based programs, and community partnerships, the number of falls among seniors can be reduced substantially.

With the help of NovaCare Rehabilitation the Euclid Family YMCA would like to help educate individuals on how to prevent falls or make sure individuals who have will not have this happen again. The Lunch and Learn program will be discussing fall prevention here at the Euclid Family YMCA on June 14th at 12:30pm - 1:30pm. This event is open to all members of the community. Please bring your own lunch and come learn about common causes of falls, test and fall indicators, and exercies to prevent falls. See you there!
