Free Fall Risk Assessment

When a senior falls, it can have a devastating effect on their quality of life, sometimes permanently affecting mobility and independence. We offer a FREE Fall Risk Assessment and Balance Screen at our Lancaster-East office! This is a great tool to help patients who are at risk for a fall understand their fall risk and take steps to avoid a future fall.

This 3-question quiz can help you ascertain whether you are at an increased risk for a fall:

  1. Are you using your walker/cane improperly?
  2. Are you older than age 65?
  3. Are you currently taking any medications?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, you are at an increased risk of a fall. A yearly balance screen is an important part of your healthcare routine and can help you identify ways to help prevent future falls. Under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist, HARTZ PT is able to test your balance via their state-of-the-art Balance Master system located at 804 New Holland Avenue, Lancaster.
