The Maine Falls Prevention Coalition is a coalition of organizations and individuals committed to raising awareness of the impact of falls on older adults. Through collaboration, networking, and outreach our aim is to reduce older adult falls, fall-related injuries, and fall-related deaths in the state of Maine.


About the Maine Falls Prevention Coalition

Revitalized in the winter of 2017 under grant funding through the Administration for Community Living, members of the Maine Falls Prevention Coalition have been meeting regularly since May 2017.

 

The Coalition is guided by a Steering Group, and sub-committees meet regularly for project specific planning and coordination.  Our members cover a broad geographic reach and represent a diverse group of organizations across the field of falls prevention.
