Welcome to Stand Strong.
This website is being created to help educate, inform and raise awareness to the ever growing problem surrounding our senior population and falling. Falls generally arise from a multitude of complications which in turn lower an individuals overall ability to maintain their balance under varying conditions. Therefore falls are a very hard thing to predict and treat.
The Stand Strong Program is a evidenced based multidimensional fall prevention program. The program has drawn upon many other successful programs, but the Stand Strong Program is the first of its kind. The program can be carried out at an individuals home, in both Assisted Living and Independent Living Communities, in Skilled Nursing Facilities and CCRC's, and in other health care facilities where falls are a big concern.
Thank you for visiting and please come back often because the site is being updated daily and there is a lot of educational and resource information that is constantly being added.
