Fall Prevention Awareness Health Fair


Brooks Rehabilitation invites YOU to the first annual Fall Prevention Health Fair: "Continuing an Active and Safe Lifestyle in Your Home."

The leading cause of death and nonfatal injuries are falls, with 41% resulting in a hip fracture caused by a slip, trip or stumble. Many of these falls are preventable with the right initiatives in place. 

Join us September 23, 2011 at the Brooks YMCA basketball gym from 10-2pm as we commemorate Falls Prevention Awareness Day.  The Brooks staff & volunteer sponsors will provide solutions through: 

  • education
  • balance assessments with recommendations
  • vision & hearing screens
  • blood pressure & medication screens
  • orthotic & footwear demonstrations
  • home modification demonstrations
  • exercise demonstrations and more!

Light food will be served and prizes will be available. Join Brooks Rehabilitation as we stand against falls and keep you active!
