Falls prevention engagement sessions

Did you know falls are the leading cause of injuries that land older adults in hospital?

Northern Health is hosting conversations across the region to learn how falls are being prevented in community.

We are reaching out to adults 65+ and their support networks to ask:

  • What people are currently doing to prevent a fall
  • What resources are available to help prevent falls
  • The unique ways falls are prevented in your community

The information gathered will guide future falls prevention efforts in northern BC.

Register here or call 250-645-3127 (Note: Please leave your name, contact details, the community you are calling from and number of participants).

If you need any further information please contact
