Incorporating evidence-based community programs into clinical care recommendations and goals may help bridge the clinic-to-community transition for older adults. Engagement in evidence-based programs can help older adults manage chronic conditions and reduce fall risk through behavior change and self-management following a clinical episode of care. This article describes evidence-based fall prevention and physical activity programs, provides resources to locate programs, and strategies to match older adults to the right programs.
