We all want to live at home taking care of ourselves for as long as possible.  Preventing an injury is important for everyone, but even more important for older adults.  

The Finding Balance campaign focuses on ways to prevent injury as you age.   

Falls cause:

  • more than 90% of all hip fractures in older adults
  • 40% of all nursing home admissions

Key messages:

  • Check your medications
  • Keep Active
  • Watch Your Step
  • Speak up about Dizziness

Check out the tasty recipes on the key messaging downloads!

Finding Balance was created by the Alberta Centre for Injury Control and Research and is currently being adopted in several areas throughout Ontario.
