One in four Americans, aged 65 plus, fall every year. Falls can lead to loss of independence, but many falls can be prevented!

Remember you have the power to prevent falls. Educate yourself and take action now! Attend our free Stay Steady Event, come yourself and bring a friend or relative:

  • Come speak with experts about improving your balance and reducing fall risk including: physical therapists, occupational therapists, registered nurses, pharmacist, Tompkins County Senior Advisors, home safety specialists, and more!
  • Take part in a Stay Steady screening with brief balance and mobility tests; and
  • Talk to and receive information about how to lower your risk for falling and improving your quality of life!

CarFit is a free, interactive and educational program designed to improve older driver safety. Trained volunteers provide information to ensure the safest “fit” for older drivers. An appointment is necessary for your 20-minute CarFit check.
