Stepping On… Falls Prevention (A Program of Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging) is a 7 class series to help you prevent falls in and out of your home!
Stepping On is a high-level, evidence-based program proven to reduce falls and build confidence in older people. A community-based, small-group workshop, Stepping On was developed in Australia and tested in a randomized trial where it demonstrated a 31% reduction in falls. Wisconsin developed an American version of Stepping On with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that has been tested in the United States and shown to achieve a 50% reduction in falls.
