Falls and fall injuries are more common than strokes and can result in serious health problems. Stepping On is a well-researched fall and injury prevention program. The free 7-week program meets for 1 1/2 hours per week. During the course of the program you will learn balance and strength training, the role of vision in helping you maintain balance, how medications can contribute to falls, ways to stay safe in your community, what to look for in safe footwear, and how to check your home for safety.

Specialists that will be meeting with you include a physical therapist, pharmacist, and vision care. Please RSVP with Ellen Shajnfeld at 718-268-5011 ext. 160 or by emailing [email protected]

Stepping On is a program presented by Commonpoint Queens’ Central Queens Adult and Senior Center in partnership with Northwell Health.
