Staying on Your Feet – Falls Prevention
The goal of this presentation is to reduce the risk of falls among older Manitobans.  The small group discussion will help participants to understand some of their risks of falling at home and in the community.

At the end of the session each participant will take home their own personal safety plan for falls prevention.
