Manitoba Fall Prevention Week for Older Adults will be November 3-7, 2014. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalization and death for people over 65 year of age in Manitoba. The good news is people of all ages can take action to prevent a fall. Exercise to improve balance, taking a daily 1000 IU Vitamin D supplement, wearing supportive footwear with a low, non-slip sole are just some of the ways people can reduce their risk.
