CBES WALK FOR FALLS PREVENTION

Central Boston Elder Services WALK FOR FALLS PREVENTION in Dudley Square on Sept. 23 at 10 am

Event sponsored by State Rep. Chynah Tyler

 Led by State Rep. Chynah Tyler, CBES staff, program participants and community supporters and residents will walk through Dudley Square on Falls Prevention Awareness Day to raise awareness of the dangers of falling, followed by a workshop providing strategies for falls prevention at the CBES Dudley Street headquarters. Boston Strong Commissioner Emily Shea plans to join the group.

The walk begins at 10 am in the CBES Courtyard at 2315 Washington St.,Roxbury in Dudley Square, with the workshop following at 11 am in the CBES Community Room on the 1st Floor at 2315 Washington St.

Falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths world-wide. Each year an estimated 646,000 individuals die from falls globally. Adults older than 65 years of age suffer the greatest number of fatal falls.

The walk brings attention to this critical issue and workshop leaders will outline clear strategies for preventing falls and saving lives. And that life you save could be your own! Help us spread the word.

CBES provides services to the elderly and disabled that enable them to remain self-sufficient and in their homes and communities. The organization provides strong advocacy on health-related issues such as falls prevention, engaging community leadership and support to help older Boston residents stay AGE STRONG! This walk and workshop is one initiative in a multifaceted program serving Boston seniors and their families. www.centralboston.org
