From my  inbox.  Here’s the memo from Kirkland’s Marie Stake:

 

Kirkland Hosts Falls Prevention Fair, September 23

 

Kirkland, WA  The Kirkland Parks & Community Service Department, Kirkland Fire Department and Kirkland Senior Council are hosting a free Falls Prevention Fair, Tuesday, September 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Peter Kirk Community Center, 352 Kirkland Avenue.  The fair offers free fall risk assessments, speakers, demonstrations, vendor exhibits and resource information.  The Fair is presented in partnership with Evergreen Healthcare, King County Fire & Life Safety Association, King County Fire Marshal’s Office, Massage Envy or Kirkland and Sear’s Miracle Ear.  For event information, go to www.ci.kirkland.wa.us or call the Peter Kirk Community Center at 425-587-3360.

 

The Kirkland Senior Council has chosen the fair as one of its yearly projects because the incidence of falls and the subsequent consequences are huge for seniors.  This is a great time for seniors to be evaluated and learn about the help that is available.  Do you have senior parents?  This fair is for you, too!
