Falling, whether due to slippery stairs or health-related reasons like dizziness or weakened eyesight, can be physically and emotionally devastating.
Most falls result in an injury. With luck, there will only be a scrape or bruise, but many falls result in broken bones with temporary or permanent loss of independence.
We'd like to greatly reduce your chances of falling - and the more know, the more control you’ll have to maintain control.
During the seminar, you can expect: a keynote presentation by Dr. Severson addressing the full scope of what you need to know to prevent falls; mini-presentations from clinical specialists including nutrition, movement therapy, resource experts and pharmacists who will help identify and help reduce a variety of contributing factors to falling; break time to relax, stretch and experience Tai Chi, a form of movement that helps keep you agile; and a free lunch to nourish your body and mind!
