Keep our Seniors Safe this Winter with an In-Home Safety and Fall Prevention Screen
Winter can be daunting for all of us at times, but it can be especially difficult for our seniors. Poor weather and cold temperatures often lead to decreased activity and isolation. Unfortunately falls in the home are a leading cause of injury and hospitalization for our elderly.
Help our loved ones stay active this winter with indoor exercise programs, senior center programs where available, regular walking routines either indoor or outdoor if the weather is good, and regular social engagements, whether it be on zoom or in person! Socialization and regular exercise are the BEST medicine for staying fit and healthy!
For local families concerned with your loved ones' safety, contact us for a FREE In-Home Safety and Fall Prevention Assessment. Receive a detailed Physical Therapy assessment with tips and suggestions to keep your home safe and to ensure that your senior loved ones are not at risk for falls.
Stay safe and keep moving as we wait for warm and sunny days ahead!
