Stepping On Fall Prevention for ages 60+

Join Parks and Recreation, Missoula Aging Services, and the Montana DPHHS Injury Prevention Program for this fun, easy program to help prevent falls and maintain your personal independence!

More than one-third of adults, 65 or over, fall each year. These falls are the leading cause of injury, hospital admissions for trauma, and death. Additionally, 35% of people aged 65 and over who fall become less active. 

Stepping On is an evidence-based fall prevention program for adults age 60+. Over 7 weeks, participants learn exercises, methods, and strategies to build self-confidence, change behaviors and improve decision making for safe, independent living. 

Stepping On is for anyone who has had a fall in the past year or is fearful of falling, is not suffering from dementia, is living in a home or apartment, and walks independently in the home (may use a cane or walker.) Call 721-PARK to register. Questions? Call Annie, 552-6664.
