September is Falls Prevention Awareness Month. This means Bethany Village residents and staff will have many opportunities to learn about the dangers of falls and how to prevent them.
Starting September 3, Bethany Village exercise physiologist Craig Cole will teach Matter of Balance, a month-long course aimed at helping residents and community members to avoid falls. Matter of Balance coach Nancy McManus, RN, will help lead the course.
During the month, participants will learn the physical and physiological aspects of falling. They will also learn that falls are preventable. Craig and Nancy will demonstrate in-home fall prevention strategies and help break residents of their fears of falling.
