Falls Prevention Resources

for Professionals to Use in Supporting Communities

 

Looking for reliable materials to support your community during COVID-19?  We've assembled some communication tools and supports here and will add to the page weekly.

 

Materials can be used in a variety of ways - be creative!  Are you packing home-delivered meals?  You could print and add a graphic to the delivery.  Are you connecting via email?  You can add a graphic or article to your email.  Are you communicating via newsletter?  Same thing.  Using social media?  Like the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging Facebook page and share content we post. 

 

Ready-to-Use & Customizable 

 

Find Falls Prevention Tips on the Health Tips page.
