September is National Healthy Aging Month! A key component of National Healthy Aging Month is Falls Prevention Day, which takes place on September 22, 2016. The Better Medicare Alliance will participate in the Falls Prevention Day events at Edgewood Terrace Senior Center and Overlook at Oxon Run in Washington, D.C. We will be joined by our partner organization, the DC YMCA, to offer fun and interactive fitness demonstrations to the audience. These demonstrations will highlight exercises and activities to improve balance, strength and flexibility in seniors, and therefore reduce fall risk. Additionally, there will be demonstrations and talks provided by Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists to further highlight falls risk reduction.
