Older Adult Falls Prevention

Due to COVID-19, Healthy Communities programs are not providing any community trainings or events at this time. If you are a client of Public Health and wish to speak with your case manager, please contact them directly. Thank you.

The Older Adult Falls Prevention Program utilizes the evidence-based practice of the “Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance” program. This program works to reduce the number of falls, the risk and fear of falling, and improve functional balance and physical performance among older adults. We offer 12 week “Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance” workshops in cooperation with community partners. We also collaborate with community partners to further the goal of reducing falls among older adults.
