Happy Fall Y’all: Celebrating Falls Prevention Awareness Day

title

By Kelly Ransdell

Today I attended a media event to celebrate Falls Prevention Awareness Day on this first day of Fall. This event focused on the epidemic of falls and their devastating effects to seniors and their families when they experience one. This was also a kickoff to a statewide effort in NC to help seniors through home visits called the Home S.A.F.E Program. The NC Association of Community Development Corporations, in partnership with USDA Rural Development, AARP, and the Falls Prevention Coalition announced this initiative to help senior adults identify hazards in their homes and make affordable safety modifications. NFPA provides fire and fall prevention messages including home visits and smoke alarm installations- with our Remembering When program. This web based educational program has all the tools you need for group presentations, home visits, and smoke alarm installations. New to the online program is a fire and fall prevention brochure as well as a one page home safety checklist. Let’s all help insure that senior adults live safely and happily in their homes! If you are looking for a fun and interactive way to teach fire and fall safety to senior adults- this is the program for you. Great job NC with this partnership as they welcome “Fall” with a safety spin.
