Falls Prevention Awareness Week is Coming Up

Every September on the first day of fall, the Falls Free® Initiative promotes National Falls Prevention Awareness Week. States are encouraged to host and promote falls prevention education and screening activities to raise awareness about the impact of falls among older adults and offer practical falls prevention solutions.



The National Council on Aging has made a Toolkit available in support of Fall Prevention Awareness Week, with helpful preventive information for older adults, caregivers, professionals and advocates.
