Don't let winter send you slipping and tripping PDF Print E-mail

One of the biggest risks from wintry weather is falling, particularly among older adults. Icy conditions make it harder to stay on your feet, and the cold may cause us to limit our activity, which can lead to loss of strength and balance. Here are some tips to help you prevent falls this winter:
• Bundle up to stay warm but make sure you can see in all directions and move easily and freely.
• Wear sturdy shoes or boots with treads, even if you're just going out to get the newspaper.
• Do some light stretching before you venture out; it will make you physically more able to prevent a fall.
• Carry a small bag of salt, sand or kitty litter in your pocket or purse to sprinkle in front of you for traction on icy paths.
• Avoid walking on surfaces that may be icy if you can. If you can't, slow down, shorten your stride, walk with feet pointed out slightly and knees gently bent to improve traction and balance.

The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) has teamed up with both LaRiche Subaru, Findlay, and Yark Subaru in Toledo this holiday season to help put an end to senior hunger.
On Dec. 12, LaRiche salespeople took on home delivery of holiday meals out of the North Baltimore Area Senior Center on Water Street and Yark salespeople delivered meals out of the Northeast Area Senior Center at 701 N. Main St., Walbridge, in order to raise community awareness and participation to support local seniors in need. This local effort is part of the Meals On Wheels Association of America's participation in the national Subaru of America, Inc. "Share the Love" event, designed as a way for the auto dealers to give back to their local communities.
