Stepping Up to Prevent Falls Coalition
To reduce falls and fall-related injuries through community collaboration, awareness, education and evidenced based interventions.
Falling is a serious health risk among older adults. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every three adults age 65 or older falls. The coalition is comprised of over twenty agencies located within Delaware County to address the prevention of falls for all citizens aged 65 or older. Through the work and activities performed by the members of the coalition it is our hope that older Ohioans will have fewer falls and fall-related injuries maximizing their independence and quality of life.
