Did you know that a person’s sense of balance starts deteriorating as young as 40 years of age? Genesis Rehabilitation and the associates at Juniper Village at Forest Hills know the importance of good balance. So, in honor of Balance Awareness Week (September 13-19th ) the teams took some extra time to discuss fall safety, review prevention tips, and provide fall-risk evaluations. Through education, safety awareness and increased exercise, we all can stay safe and avoid falls at any age!
Above: LeeAnn Testa from Genesis Rehab and Mary B. from Juniper Village at Forest Hills review fall prevention techniques.
