FallScape- Fall Prevention Program
Sep 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

FallScape ~ A New Fall Prevention Program from Vermont Department of Health and Emergency Medical Services
Tuesday, September 27, 1:00 pm

The Vermont Department of Health and Emergency Medical Services statewide have introduced a new clinically proven program to prevent falls and injuries from falls. We all have a story about falls. Hopefully, for most of us, that’s where the story ends. Unfortunately, many are not so lucky and can land in the back of an ambulance. Over 95% of hip fractures are caused by a fall. For about 70% of seniors who fracture their hip in a fall, they’ll never return home.

Local EMT, Ashley Gabriel, and Paramedic, David Palmer, are trying to change that. They are trying to change the statistics on falls in Woodstock and the surrounding area with the clinically proven program “FallScape.” For Ashley and David, it’s about changing the “education of attention” as one FallScape participant put it. They are trying to reach seniors before they get called to homes through 911.

This program is offered at no cost through the Vermont Department of Health. Join us at this introductory talk and learn more.
