A fall is one of the major fears for older adults and their loved ones. Adult & Child Therapy Services offers a clinical assessment determining risks of a fall for older adults in the community.
Adult & Child Therapy Services has a variety of state-of-the-art equipment, including the Biodex Balancer. The Balancer provides clinical protocols to determine if clients are at risk of a fall. It also determines if a patient is compensating for an injury and what areas need to be worked on to build strength, improve balance and mobility, and maintain independence.
This system is consistent with the American Geriatric Society’s clinical guidelines for prevention of a fall in an older adult.
Fall risk assessments are covered by Medicare as well as any therapy needed to correct or prevent a fall.
If you or a loved one are concerned about balance issues and the risk of falling for the older adult in your life please Contact Us to set up a fall risk assessment.
