It was Canada Day and time for festive summer fun at the Diners Club, run by Colborne Community Care at the Colborne United Church.
This month's speaker was Lynn Marshall, representing Lifeline.
Mrs. Marshall outlined for the crowd of about 50 the six main causes for falls by seniors. Loss of balance, reduced mobility, the interaction of multiple medications, low blood pressure, sensory deficits and home hazards all factor into many falls.
Her company offers devices which will alert caregivers and emergency personnel if there is a problem.
