Every year, 36 million older adults suffer a fall, and with a fall can come serious physical and emotional outcomes.

Falls are a leading cause of hip fractures and other serious injuries, but there are repercussions on mental health as well. However, falls don't have to be inevitable.

Prestige Assisted Living will present a free webinar, as well as a free online self-assessment, to help seniors and their loved ones learn valuable information that can help them remain safe.

The webinar will be conducted by Adrian Cagigas, a certified athletic trainer and senior fitness expert, at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 24. He will outline common risk factors that can lead to falls, exercises that can help build strength, and fall reduction tips that can be taken in the home to mitigate fall risk.

To sign up for the free webinar, visit http://www.prestigecanhelp.com.

You can also learn about your risk of falling, or that of a loved one, by taking a free Fall Risk Self-Assessment, available online at http://www.fallriskassessment.com.
