Fall prevention

Gigi Weiss, MSPT, director of rehabilitation from RVNA will discuss the risks and causes of falls, as well as balance and exercises to keep you steady and stable Monday, Sept. 23, at noon. Additionally, Weiss and team will perform individual assessments to help you understand your personal risk of falling and advice counter-measures to keep you safe.

According to the CDC, each year, more than one in four older adults aged 65 and older will fall. Among older Americans, falls are the number one cause of injuries and death from injury. This represents 29 million falls, 3 million emergency department (ED) visits, 800,000 hospitalizations, and 28,000 deaths.

Lunch will be served. RSVP to Stephanie at 203-834-6240.
