Fall Prevention

In order to reduce the incidence and severity of falls among seniors and in order to maintain their autonomy, the CSSS-IUGS offers various fall prevention programs. A team of specialists known as the personalized multifactorial intervention team (PMI) has been formed to respond to the needs of elders living at home.
