FPCE Exercise Brochures Available for Order
The Fall Prevention Center of Excellence is proud to announce the release of their 3 set exercise brochures. The illustrated booklets each exhibit ten exercises, in large print, that demonstrate how individuals can remain balanced, flexible and able-bodied in order to prevent falls. For maximum usability, the guide is in a calendar format, which allows the user to attach it to any upright surface, so readers can follow along as they train. The three booklets feature simple exercises that older adults can carry out at home.

On December 5-6, 2007, more than 140 invited stakeholders from various fields gathered in Long Beach, California to map out next steps on how California can better address the serious problem of falls in a rapidly growing older adult population. The Summit Goals were to: 1) increase knowledge about state of the art fall prevention efforts; 2) develop strategies to sustain and replicate promising fall prevention programs; and 3) generate recommendations to improve policies in the areas of Community Programs, Education and Training, Health Care, Healthy Lifestyles and Recreation, and Safe Housing and Communities. Due to the large nature of the proceedings, the files have been divided into sections.
