Stepping On

Stepping On

Stepping On is a program that has been researched and proven to reduce falls in older people.

It consists of a workshop that meets for two hours a week for seven weeks. Workshops are led by Vanessa Hoines and Shaundra Ziemann-Bolinske, NDSU Extension Agents and Mandy Slag, Injury Prevention Program Director, ND Dept. of Health. In addition, community guest experts provide information on vision, safety and medications. Topics include:
• Simple and fun balance and strength training
• The role vision plays in keeping your balance
• How medications can contribute to falls
• Ways to keep from falling when out in your community
• What to look for in safe foot-wear
• How to eliminate fall hazards from your home

Here’s what some workshop participants have to say:
“It was great. I’m watching more where I’m walking and am aware of my surroundings.” -Bob, Mandan, ND
“I learned so much. I would recommend this program to friends; in fact, I have already done so.” -Susan, Bismarck, ND

Is this workshop for you?
Stepping On is designed specifically for anyone who:
• Is 60 or older
• Has had a fall in the past year
• Is fearful of falling
• Lives at home
• Does not have dementia

Why Should I Be Concerned about Falling?
Falling is very common; it can result in injury and can shake your confidence. The threat of falling can be a barrier to safely doing all the things you want to do at home and in the community. That’s why preventing falls is critical to maintaining independence.

Did you know?
• More than one-third of people age 65 or older fall each year.
• Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalization for trauma and death among older adults.
• 35% of people who fall become less active.
• 40% of people who enter a nursing home had a fall in the prior 30 days.
