Community Outreach

Through our community outreach programs, we educate the public on ways to reduce the risk of injury and save lives, including fall prevention and training to stop life-threatening bleeding.

Our Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults aims to reduce the risk of falls, which are a leading cause of head injury and hip fracture. Through our hospital-based programs and partnerships with community groups, we provide tips and strategies that include regular vision exams and maintaining an exercise routine.

Our programs to help maintain and improve balance include the following:

  • A Matter of Balance, made up of eight sessions of two hours each, is designed to increase activity levels and reduce fears of falling.
  • Stepping On, consisting of seven sessions of two hours, focuses on community mobility, home hazards, medication reviews, safe footwear, and vision.
  • Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention helps older adults increase their confidence performing everyday activities. The workshop lasts eight weeks, with two hour-long classes weekly.

CarFit, another program for older adults, helps drivers improve the personal fit in their vehicle, including proper positioning of mirrors and seats. During this 20-minute evaluation, trained professionals ensure each driver can correctly adjust their vehicle to fit them, and provide safety information and materials to promote continued driving mobility.

We also offer a Stop the Bleed training course, which teaches people with little or no medical training how to recognize and control excessive bleeding caused by a traumatic injury. During this in-person, hands-on training session, participants learn how to apply a tourniquet and use pressure to stop bleeding. Participants receive a certificate of completion.
