As Closing the Gap recognizes the third year of Fall Prevention Month, we continuously strive to raise awareness of this important health risk that the elderly and physically limited populations face every day. Fall prevention is a collaborative effort between family members and the healthcare community. Together, we can make sure that our parents, grandparents, and family members are safe no matter where they are. Here are some important things we can all do to help lower the risk of falling.
March is National Social Work Month, and at Closing the Gap, we understand how important this profession is to the communities and families we serve. Whether or not you have been directly involved with social work, we guarantee that there is someone close to you whose life was enriched by the care of a social worker. We owe many of our freedoms to these individuals. For that, they should be celebrated.
