Finger Lakes Health Rehabilitation Services will be conducting a free monthly Community Mobility Screening Program on Thursday, January 17 at Garnsey Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at Geneva General Hospital. This program is open to all individuals over the age of 65.
The screening will measure participant’s scores on tests that predict their risk for falls, recognize strength deficits and balance issues as compared to peers.
Maureen Loyal, Director of Rehabilitation Services states “The goal of Finger Lakes Health Rehabilitation Services is to maintain the independence of our community dwelling older adults. This free screening will provide a report card to our seniors on their mobility as compared to their peers. The tests are evidenced based and can provide information on their risk for falls, strength deficits and balance concerns. We hope to provide this screening annually and help keep our older adults in their homes, in their community as active participants.”
The free screening will take about 30 minutes to complete and will be offered the third Thursday of the month at Garnsey Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at Geneva General Hospital.
Spots are limited, please call, 315 787-4570 to schedule your screening or register online at www.flhealth.org/events.
