Stepping On is an evidence-based fall prevention program that reduces falls among participants.
Falling is not an inevitable result of aging. Through practical lifestyle changes and community partnerships, we can substantially reduce fall risks, keeping older adults living independently with a good quality of life. Stepping On addresses known risk factors and promotes behavior change. Professional guest experts include a pharmacist, optometrist, physical therapist, and community safety officer.
Classes meet once a week for two hours. One session is 7 weeks long. Classes include interactive discussion and storytelling to promote adult learning. Education topics include: falls and risks, strength and balance exercises, medication review, home hazards, safe footwear, vision and falls, community mobility, and safety in public places.
