Falls Prevention Awareness Month 2021

Ohio Falls Prevention Awareness Month

September is Falls Prevention Awareness Month in Ohio!

Sept. 20-24 is National Falls Prevention Awareness Week.
Sept. 22 is National Falls Prevention Awareness Day. 

Join the STEADY U Ohio initiative in recognizing September as Falls Prevention Awareness Month. All month long, we'll be exploring why older adults are at risk for falling and the many things we all can do reduce our risk as we age.

Get Started: Take our Falls Risk Self-Assessment, then learn how you can reduce your risk by paying attention to the Three H's: Your Home, Your Health, and Your Habits.

Tip of the Day: Follow the Ohio Department on Aging on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for a Falls Prevention Tip of the Day throughout September.

10 Million Steps to Prevent Falls: Help raise awareness of older adult falls and the simple things that can prevent them. Walk and share a picture, host or attend a walking event, organize or join a walking group, or attend a webinar to add your steps to the statewide total.
