ALTON — Eleven million Americans older than 65 fall down each year.
“Free From Falls” is a free presentation scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16, in Alton Memorial Hospital’s cafeteria meeting rooms.
Kristine Ward, of BJC Home Care Services, will lead the presentation, which is sponsored by OASIS. Participants will leave knowing what they can do to prevent falls and the community resources available. A balance screening will be held following the lecture to assess mobility and balance.
Space is limited. To register, call (800) 392-0936.
