SEPTEMBER IS FALLS PREVENTION MONTH But we still want to prevent fall at all times. Good tips.
Take these steps to help prevent accidental falls:
Talk to your health care provider about any past falls, even if they did not lead to an injury.
Review your medications and any side effects. Consider Vitamin D supplements.
Have your vision and hearing checked annually and update eyeglasses and hearing aids as needed.
Get moving! Try Tai Chi and other activities proven to improve balance and strength.
Assess your home environment. You can reduce your fall risk by removing trip hazards, improving lighting, installing handrails and grab bars, and taking extra care aroundpets that may be underfoot.
Our next Foot Clinic is scheduled for Thursday November 11th, and then Thursday November 18th. To get an appointment you need to call the Center at 485-8112. You are sure to get an appointment because we are scheduling more days.
