Finding Balance is a falls prevention program that provides seniors and practitioners with the latest information and resources to help seniors live an active and independent lifestyle. The program uses real life strategies that older adults can use to lower their risk of a fall.
Seniors can prevent falls by keeping active to improve their strength and balance, reviewing their medications yearly, and by visiting their eye doctor for a yearly eye exam.
The program is developed and coordinated by the Injury Prevention Centre in partnership with seniors’ groups, health care organizations and practitioners across Canada.
Finding Balance is administered across Canada by the program’s Provincial Stewards. Various partners such as regional health authorities, public health organizations, and community health groups have been tasked with delivering and administering Finding Balance in their respective regions.
