National Injury Prevention Day

National Injury Prevention Day

July 5 is Injury Prevention Day in Canada and a reminder that falls are the one of the most common preventable injuries for older adults. In fact, they are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations among people aged 65 or older. Older adults can reduce their risk of falls by increasing their strength and balance, having an annual medication review and vision assessment, and removing home hazards. Assess your fall risk and learn about proactive ways to prevent them on the BC Finding Balance website.
