Falls can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Having Parkinson’s will increase your risk of falls.
Prevention and planning can reduce your risk for falls. Not all falls can be prevented, but there are things you can do to keep yourself safe and reduce the number of falls and injury.
This month, Parkinson Canada is launching a new resource to address this important topic. In this webinar we have a chance to hear from the Author Nicole Acerra PhD BScPT BA on some of the causes of falls and suggest simple and practical suggestions to keep you active, independent, and on your feet.
This webinar will be conducted in English only.
