Smart Moves: Tips for Preventing Falls

This webinar was presented on May 23, 2012.

This webinar focuses on the Smart Moves toolkit, a resource developed and pilot-tested by SMARTRISK. Designed with both seniors and their caregivers in mind, the toolkit is a large-type, highly readable booklet divided into four main categories key to preventing falls: bone health, exercise, medication management, and home modifications. The toolkit includes a pull-out poster with 15 exercises designed to help older adults strengthen their bodies to prevent falls.
