Falls could be the most serious health issue you're not talking about with your doctor.



Too many people think a fall can't happen to them - but one in four Americans over 65 will fall this year. Even when people aren't hurt, they are often afraid to go back to their regular activities after a fall. But cutting back on normal activities actually increases your risk of falling again. 


Falls are preventable . . . if you take the right actions. 


In Stepping On workshops, we take fall prevention step-by-step. Participants learn how to build and maintain the physical strength they need to walk confidently.  From foot wear to prescriptions, you'll learn which risks you face - and make an individualized action plan to stay on your feet, and living life the way you want.
