About Us

The Fall Prevention Coalition of San Mateo County was developed in March 2003 and brings together a coalition of more than 20 different community provider agencies, hospitals, nonprofit organizations, senior centers and private service providers, all serving older adults in San Mateo County.

In San Mateo County, falls account for 80% of accidental injury deaths in individuals over the age of 85, and 20% in ages 75 to 84.

The mission of the Fall Prevention Coalition of San Mateo County is to prevent falls among older adults in our community through collaboration, education, resource development and advocacy.
