Falling is a major cause of injury among older adults. By increasing your knowledge about what can lead to falls, you can help prevent them. Come raise your awareness about this important subject at a talk by KFL&A Public Health volunteers at Sydenham branch, on Friday, May 26, at 10 a.m. Anyone who attends will receive a tote bag with fall prevention resources. This talk — a repeat of one that took place at Isabel Turner branch on May 9 — is another chance to gain key information that will help you stay on your feet!
