Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans aged 65+ fall every year?
Falls threaten the safety and independence of older adults, though falling is NOT an inevitable part of aging. Through practical lifestyle adjustments, the number of falls among older adults can be reduced substantially.
If you are concerned about your balance or risk of falling, please pre-register for the free Falls
Risk Screening at the VINE Adult Community Center patio. The screening will include an evaluation of gait, strength and balance to identify modiﬁ able risk factors. Mankato Clinic Physical Therapist, Katie Swanson, and VINE’s Health & Wellness staﬀ will work together to assess your risk for falls.
Reserve your spot online or by calling Jen at (507) 386-5588.
