PENDLETON — Falling at any age can be dangerous, but falls are a leading cause of injury for older adults. Prestige’s McKay Creek Estates invites community members to learn how to reduce the risk of falling at home with a free, 90-minute webinar on Thursday, March 18, at 1 p.m.

The webinar will be hosted by licensed athletic trainer and senior fitness expert Adrian Cagigas, who will explain the factors that increase fall risk and provide attendees with the tools and resources they need to reduce their risk of falling.

The risk of falling poses a serious threat to older adults and a greater threat to adults living with dementia or other cognitive impairments. In fact, individuals living with dementia are five times more likely to fall than older adults living without a cognitive impairment. To help reduce the risk of falling, Cagigas aims to teach seniors and their families how to protect themselves, or a loved one, by “fall-proofing” their homes.

As a partner in active aging, Prestige is dedicated to offering programs and resources to help older adults enjoy active, healthy lifestyles. RSVP for this free fall-reduction webinar at PrestigeCanHelp.com.
