Programs & Services
Welcome to the Fall Prevention Program!
» FALL PREVENTION FORUM – September 2023
The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging and the Fall Prevention Coalition partners are aware of the critical effects that falls have on the health of individuals and most especially seniors. For that reason, we offer case management services and evidence-based classes designed with those 60 and older in mind.
If you have fallen or are fearful of falling, consider reaching out to us to learn how to improve mobility and balance. Flyers for classes currently being offered are below. All classes are FREE and open to any Ventura County resident 60 or older. For more information call (805) 477-7300 (option 6) or e-mail Fall.Prevention.Program@ventura.org.
