Fall Prevention Week: How to Get Up After a Fall

at Mapleton Y

We are partnering with the Boulder County Area Agency on Aging to reduce the number of accidental falls suffered by older adults. We will be participating in Falls Prevention Week at each of our branches. Non-members who would like to participate in these special events are welcome.

Get Up, Get Up Demo
During our Moving for Better Balance class, we will provide a Get Up, Get Up demo to show you how to get up after a fall using nearby furniture or no furniture.
Sept 24, 10:45-11:45am, Arapahoe Y, Group Exercise Room

Falls Prevention Awareness Lab
Experience the Falls Prevention Awareness Lab, which is a large interactive lobby display that demonstrates common household hazards that contribute to falls. A bilingual falls prevention specialist from Boulder County Area Agency on Aging will answer questions.

How to Get Up After a Fall
An occupational therapist will be in the SilverSneakers Classic class to demonstrate how to get up after a fall. Also, a Boulder Fire and Rescue first responder will explain what happens when they are called to a fall. Exercises that emphasize balance will be the day’s focus.
