SAFE (Senior Awareness & Fall Education): Central Valley Coalition
Your One Stop Resource . . ."To reduce falls among older adults by raising awareness, establishing a network of services and advocating on their behalf."
The SAFE: Central Valley Coalition was founded in June 2011 and currently has over 30 organizations involved. The coalition includes an interdisciplinary group working collaboratively on needs assessment (current and future), cataloging and consolidating current fall prevention resources, educating seniors, families and caregivers about the risks and preventable nature of falls, and providing professional development to local health and social service providers.
