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:
- Are you using your walker/cane improperly?
- Are you older than age 65?
- 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.
