If you answered YES to ANY of the above questions, ask your wellness director about our simple balance testing program to reduce your risk of catastrophic injury?
Statistics show that people aged 65+ years have a 1 in 3 chance to experience a fall each year. The cost of falls is debilitating both physically and financially and often the elderly require the services of a more skilled provider once injury occurs. By offsetting this risk, your residents will enjoy a longer more functional experience in your facility.
