Haliburton Highlands Health Services wants to help seniors prevent falls.

H.H.H.S. is hosting a falls prevention course at the Haliburton Hospital Tuesdays and Thursdays until October 19th.

Community Outreach Coordinator Tina Kiiver says falls can cause seniors complications.

Kiiver says the free course will focus on strengthening exercises as well as education.

She adds broken bones take longer to heal as we age.

If you want to register for the course call H.H.H.S. at 705-457-2941, extension 2938.
