Falls Prevention Awareness Week (Sept 21-25)

The Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan's Healthy Aging Contract Administrator, Barb Nelson, joined My West Michigan and The Morning Show with Shelley Irwin to discuss Falls Prevention Awareness Week, a nationwide effort to prevent falls among older adults. COVID-19 has changed a lot of things, but one has stayed the same: falling is NOT a normal part of aging. You can catch Barb's interviews and learn more about preventing falls via the links below:
