The National Council on Aging (NCOA) has designated September as National Falls Prevention Month. And as it’s the first day of fall, they’ve made a clever connection between the beginning of fall and fall prevention.
This post Preventing Falls on the First Day of Fall does a great job connecting the two types of “fall”, and points to a number of great references on both the NCOA and the National Institutes of Health websites for fall prevention.
As we’ve reported, falls make up a great number of claims in the Habitat for Humanity Affiliate Insurance Program, and this is a great reminder for your elderly volunteers especially, about the increased risk of falling as we age.
