Boost Your Balance

Balance is critical to help prevent falls. Staff or retired medical professionals conduct an in-home screening to identify areas of risk and then work with you to set up a plan to reduce those risks.

“This screen made me think about potential fall issues. You have helped so much and given me ideas. I’ll be telling other about what I’ve learned!”
