The Alberta Centre for Active Living is pleased to launch a new resource for people who are helping older adults to be more physically active.
Preventing Falls Through Physical Activity: A Guide for People Working with Older Adults is a 38-page booklet specifically designed for activity leaders in rural communities. The guide is very useful for people in urban settings as well.
The guide was developed through a grant from the Community Injury Control Fund from the Alberta Centre for Injury Control & Research and with input from a provincial advisory committee.
The Guide can be downloaded from the Alberta Centre for Active Living website, duplicated and shared freely. A limited number of full colour copies are available. Ordering information is provided on the website.
Our other resource The Rural Route to Active Aging: A Guide for People Who Want to Stay Active as They Age is also available on the website. This resource complements Preventing Falls Through Physical Activity.
The Alberta Centre for Active Living is funded by the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation.
