SCP 21117 Balance Screening and Fall Risk Education

Thursday, October 25

9:00 – 11:00 AM

Wieden Hall, PT Lab/classroom

According to the American Physical Therapy Association, about one in three seniors above age 65 and nearly one in two seniors over age 80 will fall at least once this year.  Many times this results in disastrous consequences.  As our nation's population ages, the rate of falls is rising.  Falling and fear of falling may be reduced by physical therapy intervention. Students in the UMPI physical therapist assistant program will use standardized balance screening to assess your risk of a fall.  They will also provide handy education about how to easily reduce your risk of falls in your home by making simple changes.

You can deal with disaster better by preparing in advance and by working with those in your support network: your family, neighbors and friends as a team. Knowing what to do is your responsibility.  Course will include Community CPR (hands only).

The university cafeteria is about $8 for an all-you-can-eat lunch or bring your own. Don’t forget to bring candy to share.  Necco wafers, M&M’s, Tootsie Rolls are just a few of my favorites
