SPECIALTY PROGRAM: Balance & Fall Prevention

Aging, physical changes, health conditions and even medications can make it more likely that someone will fall. Our balance and fall prevention program is designed to assess and minimize your risk.
We consider physical issues like your balance, flexibility, muscle strength and gait as well identifying hazards in your home. Then we put into action an individualized plan to significantly reduce your fall risk.
