MONROE — One in four older adults has a fall each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Wisconsin leads the nation in fall-related deaths for people age 60 and older. But the good news, according to the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Green County, is that falls are not a normal part of aging and can be prevented. The Stepping On program, offered in Monroe by the ADRC has been researched and proven to reduce falls by 31%.
