Our Learning Centre will help you learn about medical conditions that affect your life and the products that can help you live a better life.
In our youth and middle age, we are constantly on the go. We carry small children and heavy groceries in our arms, climb counters to reach high shelves, run downstairs to answer the door, and rush around the house doing chores. When we’re young, it’s all easy, effortless and done without a second thought to health and safety. As an older adult, some of these same everyday tasks are much more difficult and can even put us at risk of an accidental slip or fall, which can cause severe injuries. Accidental falls are one of the most serious health problems facing seniors today!
Among these alarming statistics, there is some good news! Falls are, for the most part, a preventable health problem. And there’s simple steps you can take to avoid the risk of slips, falls and the injuries that go with them.
The more you know, the better prepared you will be to take action to prevent a fall, and to react safely and calmly to get the help you need if you do fall. As part of your health care team, it’s an important part of our mission to help you get the information you need to stay independent, safe, and steady on your feet!
