Finding Balance Falls Prevention Month - November, 2021

Theme: Keeping Well

November is Seniors’ Falls Prevention month across Canada. The Injury Prevention Centre developed and coordinates the Finding Balance Program which is an evidence-based education program and public awareness campaign designed to educate and empower older Albertans to stay independent and prevent falls.

By sharing free Finding Balance materials with older adults, you can:

  1. Reduce falls - the leading cause of injury among seniors
  2. Support older adults to remain independent and live a healthy, active life

On behalf of the Injury Prevention Centre (IPC), and our partners, we are sharing the Finding Balance Falls Prevention Month information.

Keeping Well Booklet

The Keeping Well booklet was created to help older Albertans to stay well, keep active and stay connected to lower their risk of falling.
