According to the North Central Regional Falls Coalition, falls are one of the leading causes of injury in our community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that approximately one in four adults aged 65 and older fall each year and 37% of falls result in injury. With injury comes loss of independence and ability to engage in important daily activities. In Washington State, approximately 31% of older adults fall annually. An increasing number of these falls result in death.
The intent of the Senior Health Fair is to provide free information and education to assist our community in falls prevention and living healthier, quality lives. Attendees will have access to a variety of local organizations that provide services to seniors. Vendors will offer free balance tests, blood pressure checks, home safety assessments, hearing screenings, medical equipment demonstrations, medication assessments and more.
