Give Back Programs
As the main focus of our Mission, Education and Awareness is a key element in Falls Prevention. Falls are the leading cause of death and injury in Aging Adults. It is critical that the aging, thier caregivers, and the community at large are aware of and educated on the importance of Falls Prevention. The Safe Aging Coalition of NKY is dedicated to the Education Programs we can offer in our Community. In addition to Seminars, Presentations, Health Clinics, and Demonstrations, our Website will host articles on the Research and Prevention of Falls and will provide virtual learning opportunities.
The Safe Aging Coalition is excited to announce that they will be offering a “Give-Back” Program. Along with our Education we offer to the community, we want to offer Seniors in need assistance in the area of Falls Prevention. Every year we offer Nightlights to the first 200 attendees of our Adult Health Clinic with a Focus on Falls Prevention in September. Since most falls occur at night, we have purchased nightlights to guide the way to bathroom safety.
