Event Description: All ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged to attend! The ability to age well starts by creating healthy habits and behaviors in early adulthood.
Get plugged in to health and wellness classes at the Center and in the community; learn how to make your home safer to maintain your independence; learn about resources, technology, and services available to you in Klamath to help you Age Well; receive health screenings by various providers; play games; win prizes and more. We intend to provide our annual Flu Vaccination Clinic during the Expo.
This will be the highlighted event of several that will be offered during National Fall Prevention Awareness Week (Sept 18-24) in the Klamath Falls area.
Falls are a national public health concern and they are NOT a normal part of aging. Each year, 1 in 4 Americans aged 65 or older fall. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall and every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Each year, more than $50 billion is spent on the direct medical costs related to fall injuries. Falls are costly and common – but they do not have to be. Take advantage of the upcoming week in September to be falls free and independent. More details to come.
