We bring the therapy to you in your home
In-home Balance and Fall Prevention
We offer in-home balance and fall prevention for those who are having difficulty maintaining their balance and who are at risk for falling. Falling is simply not a normal part of aging. Unfortunately, it is estimated that one out of four adults 65 and above fall each year. This can have a devastating impact on their independence and ability to perform daily activities.
How does it work?
We perform a thorough evaluation to assess your balance and fall risk. This initially includes screening questions regarding your fall history, medical history, current medications, current functional deficits, and goals.
We then perform an individualized fall risk assessment using a variety of evidence based tools. This may include evaluation of your balance, gait, range of motion, sensation, endurance, etc. We use the information gathered from the assessment to develop a plan of care. This often includes 1-3 sessions per week depending on the assessment and your goals.
