Fall Prevention Program

Our Fall Prevention Program provides free screenings, clinical assessments, and home modifications to those with the most significant risk of falling. Falls can lead to a loss of independence, but they are preventable. Our Fall Prevention Coordinator and Physical or Occupational Therapist will assess older adults to determine fall risk. Free modifications such as the installation of grab bars, improved lighting, and other fall prevention equipment will be provided. No structural modifications will be made.
