In October 2008, the Kentucky Safety and Prevention Alignment Network established a new statewide fall prevention coalition—the Kentucky Safe Aging Coalition (KSAC). KSAC is a member of the national Falls Free™ Coalition sponsored by the National Council on Aging and serves as a link to national and state resources available to the local and state agencies and coalitions. Its vision is to form a comprehensive and collaborative approach to keeping older adults healthy and independent by identifying and reducing risk factors for injury. Its mission is to bring together those interested in serving adults age 65 and older in fall prevention. KSAC meets quarterly, works with various partners to host an annual Falls and Osteoporosis Summit, supports Falls Prevention Awareness Week, provides fall prevention resources and support for the membership, and shares updates on best practices and literature regarding fall prevention and osteoporosis.
