Fall Prevention Clinic
Whether you have recently fallen or worry about falling, our clinic care team can help restore peace of mind for you and your family. A visit to the Fall Prevention Clinic will identify and help correct the source of your fall risk:
- Side effects of medication – Some will cause light-headedness or even dizziness
- Vision problems
- Loss of strength or balance
- Footwear – Shoes with thick, heavy soles may increase your risk of falling
- Other factors that can cause a fall may include everyday items in your home environment
A pre-visit telephone call will identify the specialists who can help maintain your health, well-being and independence. Based on this pre-visit assessment, you may be scheduled to meet with physicians and other professionals with expertise in:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Social work
- Nurse care coordination
Your first visit to the center will include assessments for balance and strength, as well as a review of any medications that you take. The clinic care team may also offer a home assessment, depending on your needs. A referral from your primary care physician is needed to visit the Fall Prevention Clinic. Appointments for new patients are available Fridays.
