COLUMBUS - It seemed like it would never come, but spring officially began on Friday, March 20. After a particularly harsh winter, the Ohio Department of Aging and the STEADY U Ohio initiative urge all older Ohioans to increase their activity this spring to build strength and balance and reduce their risk of falling. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths among Ohioans age 60 and older. However, falls are not a normal part of aging and most falls can be prevented.
