Preventing Falls: Staying healthy and on your feet

As we age, the risk of falling becomes more serious. Falls can often result in a broken hip or other bones, and these can lead to lifelong disability. Even if someone is not hurt by a fall, the fear of falling again can limit a person’s activities. Join Providence experts as they discuss ways you can prevent a fall for yourself or someone you love. The presentation includes a short demonstration of Tai Chi.
