Caregivers as Partners and Recipients of Falls Prevention Efforts: The Role of State Coalitions

April 25, 2017 GMT-0500 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Caregivers play an important role in preventing falls among older adults, and are often at risk themselves. The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is partnering with the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) to connect professionals in aging and caregiving to better educate caregivers across the country about falls risk factors and prevention strategies. Learn about the National Network of Caregiving Coalitions and State Falls Prevention Coalitions. This webinar will also highlight collaborations between caregiving and fall prevention coalitions in two states, Montana and Washington.
