Abstract

1. Seventy-three percent of older women attending a fall prevention program made at least one low cost change in either their personal behavior or living environment to decrease their likelihood of falls. 2. Older women educated in small group sessions made more fall prevention changes than those educated individually. 3. When conducting a fall prevention program, having examples of safety devices available for participants to examine enhances the presentation.
