Fall Risk Screen
We conduct a brief questionnaire and a quick, 3 item assessment to determine your personal risk of falling in the next year.
We will provide you with some basic balance exercises and can help connect you to a physical therapist if recommended.
Did you know that you do not need a referral to see a physical therapist? Medicare will reimburse for your visit without a referral. You can just call directly and book.
Prevention is the key! If you can identify that you are at risk of falling before you ever have a serious one, you can work on improving your strength and balance proactively. This will give you the best chance possible at remaining independent in your home and functioning fully.
Our screen is evidence based, using guidelines from the CDC and the National STEADI Fall Prevention Program.
