September is National Fall Prevention Month
The COA will offer guest speakers at both its centers on Friday, September 21, which is National Fall Prevention Day. In Three Rivers, Autumn Yost of Triple River CrossFit will demonstrate exercises and movements you can do to help prevent falls. She will be speaking at 10 a.m. in the Community Room. Immediately after Autumn's presentation we will have a therapist from Heartland Health Care Center in Three Rivers to talk about fall risk. Sturgis Hospital will be at the Oaks Enrichment Center at 11 a.m. that day and will offer balance assessments with practical tips on how to prevent falls.
