Falls are the leading cause of traumatic injury and death to older adults. 25% of older adults will experience a fall as they age, which may lead to a loss of function, independence and even death. But, falls CAN be prevented! Stepping On is a national program recognized by the CDC as reducing the risk of falls. This 7-week course provides education from nurses, paramedics, a pharmacist, a physical therapist, and a low-vision specialist to provide you with prevention guidelines. Participants must be over the age of 60 and physically capable of performing some light physical therapy exercise, although the use of a cane or occasional walker is acceptable. For more information or to register, please call the Injury Prevention Coordinator at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center at 512-341-6118. Registration is required, and participation for all 7 weeks is requested. This program is provided in partnership with Williamson County Emergency Services and will be provided on-site at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center.
