Falls Prevention Week 2022 Begins Monday, September 19

Check out a week full of programming


Boulder County, Colo. – One in four Americans aged 65 and over fall each year. Falls are the leading cause of injuries, which can be fatal, for older adults. A fall can have serious impacts on long-term health, day-to-day function, and independence. The good news is that many falls can be prevented.

One of the ways you can prevent a fall is by knowing who you can call on for help or creating a falls prevention team to help you spot and address your fall risks. Falls prevention is a team effort - everyone has a role to play to reduce falls risk.

Join the Boulder County Partners for Falls Prevention to learn how strengthening community connections can keep you and those you care for safe with our activities during Falls Prevention Week 2022.
