Event description

Description

Sharil Cass, PT, DPT, Board Certified Neurologic Specialist

A slip or fall can have serious consequences as we get older. Studies have shown that 1 out 4 independent older adults fall each year. Of these falls, 1 out of 5 falls results in fractures or head injury leading to loss of function or immobility. Join us for an interactive, evidence-based presentation for adults who are at risk of falling. You will learn about factors that increase the risk of falling and review strategies to keep you safe at home. We will discuss the importance of exercise, medication review, vision screening, footwear, and home safety. After the presentation we will have a balance screening clinic so that you can learn more from Farnum Rehabilitation Physical Therapists what your personal fall risk is and options for reducing your risk.

Thursday, September 12 2:00-3:00 p.m. North Conference Rooms 1 and 2
