The Finding Balance website is under redevelopment. We have indexed all our resources on this interim site.

Finding Balance

Finding Balance is a national program developed by the Injury Prevention Centre at the University of Alberta and is designed to raise awareness of preventing slips, trips, and falls among older Albertans and Canadians. Naturally, the risk of falling goes up as we get older. The Finding Balance program uses real life strategies that older adults can use to lower their risk of a fall.

Falls Prevention Month: The Finding Balance Campaign

November is Falls Prevention Month across Canada. Each provincial steward hosts and operates their own campaign catered to the needs of their population.

We are dedicated to helping seniors prevent falls so they can stay active and independent.
