A free safety presentation for older adults is offered on Thursday, January 16, at the Havasu Regional Medical Center Learning Center, located at 1785 McCulloch Boulevard North. There are two presentations to choose from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. This one-hour interactive presentation is designed to keep community-dwelling adults over the age of 65 independent, active, and safe.
Statistics show that unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury-related mortality among Arizona residents 65 years and older, accounting for thousands of hospitalizations, and an average of two deaths every day in 2016. Participants are provided printed resource information and activities that include self-fall assessment, home safety checklist and modification, medication management, exercise and balance training, vehicle safety, and more.
This free presentation is provided by Banner Health Care and brought to our community by the Lake Havasu City Fire Department, Havasu Regional Medical Center, and Lake Havasu Firefighter Charities.
