During this program a therapist will describe various risk factors that can lead to a fall and will explain and demonstrate some safety measuers and tools that individuals can use to protect themselves from accident or injury. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity for participants to receive personal reviews of their medications and blood pressure checks by a nurse, as well as the opportunity for individual fall risk assessments by a therapist.
