Fall Prevention

Did you know that deaths from unintentional injuries are the seventh leading cause of death among older adults and falls account for the largest percentage of those deaths according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?

Senior Pride partners with Pima Council on Aging (PCOA) to educate our LGBTQI+ older adults about myriad ways to prevent falls, including increasing strength and balance. A required workbook is provided for a $20 fee. Senior Pride regularly hosts PCOA fall prevention classes.
