PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - The Aroostook Area Agency on Aging is shinning a light on fall prevention this month. The agency says falling is not only a concern for older adults..but for everyone. They’re promoting safety tips and exercise.

“It’s simple but it’s difficult, a lot of people just don’t realize how easy it is to fall. And then some people become embarrassed because they fell. Don’t be embarrassed, we all do it. We’re lucky when we don’t break something or hurt something. Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries for people over 65.”

Aroostook Area Agency on Aging offers free classes and helpful resources on Fall Prevention for you or a loved one.
