We’re encouraging everyone to talk about falls

You can access resources and find out more about fall prevention year-round by visiting Finding Balance NB.

In New Brunswick, there are on average 8 admissions to a hospital each day due to fall-related injuries among older adults.

The good news is that most falls are preventable if you take steps to address fall risk factors such as physical inactivity, medication risk and household hazards. We all have a role to play to reduce these numbers by working together. Go to findingbalancenb.ca for more information and resources about steps you can take to help prevent falls.
