Snowy and icy conditions are upon us, and this is a good time for everyone, especially senior citizens, to be extra careful while they're out walking. The Ohio Department of Aging has a "Steady U" initiative as part of its winter safety awareness program. Teresa Cook, Fall Prevention Trainer for the Mansfield-based District 5 Area Agency on Aging has some tips for safe winter walking, and a warning about the potential for injury from falling. She suggests wearing shoes or boots with a rubber sole and a gripping tread. She says a fall can cause broken bones, most likely the hip, and a concussion. Cook says the postal service and trash hauling companies have shown a willingness to help seniors at this time of year. If you would like your mail delivered to your door instead of into the mailbox at the end of your driveway, you just have to call and ask. The Agency on Aging holds fall prevention classes called "A Matter of Balance" several times a year, most recently last month. The next classes start in March. They're free, and are held once a week for eight weeks. Call the Agency on Aging to reserve your place in the class. The number is 419-522-5612.
