The Celebration Continues Throughout the Month!
After Senior Services' event, be sure to join the National Council on Aging (NCOA) on social media as it hosts two fun events to spread the word about preventing falls. On Sept. 20 at 3 p.m., NCOA will be out in the community demonstrating the importance of medication management in a Facebook Live broadcast.
Then on Sept. 25, it will hold its annual Twitter chat. Use the #FPAD2018 hashtag to follow and join in the conversation.
Senior Services is a partner in the National Falls Free® Initiative. This initiative is a thousands-strong and growing network of the Administration of Community Living, the Aging Network, the CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, national professional and consumer organizations, and state and local public health entities working together to meet the Healthy People 2020 goals of reducing older adult fall-related emergency department visits by 10 percent.
