A screening is a short assessment to let you know if further evaluation is recommended. It is not a substitute for a comprehensive evaluation. For more information or to register for a screening, call 202-364-7602.
A fall can change your life. We are all concerned about injuries related to falls. Did you know that one in three people over age 65 fall? And that if you have fallen once, you are likely to fall again (mayoclinic.org)? Besides osteoporosis, several other factors might contribute to falls: heart disease, diabetes, other medical conditions, side effects of medications, judgment problems, lack of exercise, inattention, vision problems and clutter. Whatever the reason, you can learn how to prevent falls with one of our occupational therapists, like Sibley’s Janet Platt. Contact the Senior Association for more information on this program.
