Falls Prevention and Bone Health Program


At every age, the greatest single cause of injuries is falls. However, falls are more serious for older adults. Falls can cause injury, pain, loss of movement and function, loss of independence, hospitalization and even death. Falls don’t have to happen when you get older. You can take action to protect yourself and prevent falls, and Trillium Health Partners’ Falls Prevention and Bone Health Program can help.

The program includes:

  • an comprehensive assessment at our Fall Prevention Clinic by a nurse practitioner and/or geriatrician and a physiotherapist with recommendations for treatment
  • if able, participate in the Strong and Steady program, a two-hour education and exercise session, twice a week for six weeks
  • a follow-up phone call three months after your program is completed

Research has shown that programs like ours that combine assessment, exercise and education reduce the risk of falls or becoming injured from a fall.

By taking part in this program, you will:

  • Improve your strength and balance
  • Learn how to make your home safer
  • Find out your risk of having a fall
  • Learn many ways to protect yourself

Who We Help

We welcome adults 65 years of age and older who live in the community and want to stay strong, steady and independent.

You can take part if you:

  • are well enough to be physically active
  • can walk 25 meters, with a walking aid if needed
  • are able to learn new information
  • are able to get to and from the program
