VNA Northwest, Inc. has launched a fall prevention campaign that will include a series of fall risk assessment clinics in area towns beginning this spring. The campaign and the clinics are being funded by a grant from the Connecticut Collaboration for Fall Prevention, headed by Dorothy Baker, Ph.D., of Yale University.
The clinics will feature a presentation by Gail Atkinson, OT, one of VNA Northwest’s occupational therapists. She’ll describe the various risk factors that can lead to a fall and will explain and demonstrate some safety measures and tools that individuals can use to protect themselves from accident or injury. Gail’s presentation will be followed by the opportunity for participants to receive personal reviews of their medications and blood pressure checks by a VNA Northwest nurse, as well as the opportunity for individual fall risk assessments by a VNA Northwest physical therapist.
The schedule of confirmed clinics is as follows:
Wednesday, March 19, 1-4 p.m., The Litchfield Community Center, 421 Bantam Road, Litchfield Thursday, April 10, 9 AM - Noon at The Sullivan Senior Center, 88 East Albert Street, Torrington Tuesday, April 22, 1-3 PM at the Washington Senior Center, 7 Bryan Plaza, Washington
