COMING SOON TO A THEATER NEAR YOU . . .
Christine Hamacher worked as the Director of Community Outreach for private-duty home care agencies in Tampa Bay, Florida for eight years. With a background in public relations, client services, case management, education, and business development, she has always been a fierce community advocate for vulnerable populations. Her experience in the senior home care industry, as A Matter of Balance coach, and as a family caregiver give her unique insight to the causes of falls among older adults and what can be done to prevent them.
Christine volunteered as Chair of the Fall Prevention Coalition of Pinellas and Pasco counties for four years. Under her leadership, membership dramatically increased and public education efforts grew to include a video on the impact of falls for older adults, quarterly educational meetings at hospitals, annual community health fairs, a variety of seminars/workshops, and multiple city proclamations for Fall Prevention Awareness Day each year. Christine’s determination to utilize live theater and senior actors to spotlight fall prevention awareness led to the development of the one-act play, Denying Gravity, which has positively impacted larger audiences than ever anticipated. Directing this production ignited a fire in her to continue educating and empowering seniors on important topics through community theater.
