The Check Your Medicines campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of checking your medicines as a strategy to reduce falls in older adults living in the community. Key target audiences are non-Aboriginal people aged 60+ years and Aboriginal people aged 45+ years.
The Check Your Medicines campaign will run from 1 February 2019 – 30 April 2019 and encourages older adults to stay healthy and independent by managing their medications. This includes knowing their medicines and the side effects which may cause a fall, being aware of taking multiple medications and reducing the use of sleeping tablets.
Grants are open to all those working with older adults living in the Western Australian community and can include Local Governments, Pharmacies, regional community groups, community and not-for-profit organisations and clubs.
