(Back to Photo Gallery page)
Australian Asian Association under the Community Partners Program conducted an information session “Stay on your feet” for a group of Spanish seniors on the 11th August 2011 at AAA. Twenty Spanish seniors participated at this session. The presentation was done by Ms. Sarai Stevely from ICCWA – Injury Control Council of WA. As the group was Spanish speaking we used the services of a interpreter. The information session was well received by the participants. The presenter explained the 9 steps seniors need to follow to avoid falls which can cause injury. The 9 steps are Be Active, Manage your medicines, Manage your health, Improve your balance, Walk tall, Foot care and safe footwear, Regular eyesight checks and Identify, remove and report hazards.
