Fall Prevention Awareness Day at NorthPointe

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

NorthPointe Health and Wellness will sponsor a special free event to help prevent falls on Thursday, September 22 on Fall Prevention Awareness Day. The event is open to the public and will be held in the atrium of NorthPointe Health and Wellness Facility. Feel free to stop by and learn some very important tips.

The physical therapy team and AlertLine will provide brief screenings to prevent falls focusing on balance, information about fall prevention, and experts there to help answer your questions.

Many people think falls are a normal part of aging, however they are not. Most falls can be prevented and you have the power to reduce your risk. Exercising, managing your medications, having your vision checked, and making your home safer are all steps you can take to prevent a fall. NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus is located at 5605 E. Rockton Road in Roscoe.
