Goodyear Heights Metro Park Lodge 2077 Newton St., Akron, OH 44305

At Direction Home, our first priority is keeping our community members safe.  With this in mind, we have decided to postpone our Falls Prevention Awareness Day until 2021.  We will still share practical information you can use every day to help prevent falls along with fun activities, so stay tuned.  Can't wait to see you!

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury. Many falls are preventable. Join us as we explore the options for older adults for increased balance, strength, and flexibility—and have fun while we do it!
