Falling is a major and potentially life-changing issue for older adults. It is important to realize that many falls can be prevented and that falls are not a normal part of aging. Working primarily on the orthopedic unit at YRMC, physical therapist Jodie Ciccio sees firsthand the damage caused by falls. Her presentation, "I Didn't Fall - The Floor Just Needed A Hug." focuses on risk factors associated with falling, fall prevention tips, and includes a hands-on assessment to determine your risk of falling.
Join Jodie for this informative talk on fall prevention. Register online below or call (928) 336-3100 to attend this free presentation. Bring your questions and enjoy coffee, conversation and a light breakfast.
