The WNC Fall Prevention Coalition has taken every effort to locate and identify fall prevention services offered in our region for this resource guide; however, a listing in this guide does not constitute any endorsement by the WNC Fall Prevention Coalition. We strongly encourage any individual interested in these services to use due diligence in order to confirm licensing requirements, recorded grievances, hiring practices, and other pertinent information that would be necessary for you to make the best personal assessment before you make use of them.
