Falls Free


All older adults and individuals with disabilities in the Commonwealth of Virginia will have access to fall prevention interventions that will result in them living independently and safely.


The mission of the Statewide Falls Prevention Coalition is to foster collaboration in the Commonwealth of Virginia to increase awareness of fall risk factors, promote access to fall prevention interventions, and empower older adults, individuals with disabilities, and their caregivers to engage in activities to reduce the risk and incidence of falls.
