OLSF is a half-day event (10:30am - 2:30pm) where older adults are able to learn about local falls-prevention programs/classes, receive screenings and reviews for blood pressure, cognitive function, medication, strength/balance, and urinary incontinence; and to participate in program demonstrations, such as Tai Chi, Chicago Steppin', and Stepping On. Participants leave with community resources and information about how to best prevent a fall. The goal is to plug participants into an appropriate falls prevention program after the event concludes whether that is physical therapy or one of Dane County’s many offerings of falls prevention, strength, and balance classes. The event is free; lunch is provided and transportation is available upon request.

To register, please call Safe Communities at 608-441-3060 by Tuesday, September 12. Space is limited!
