Health Screenings

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.

Free Hearing Screenings

A hearing screener from Washington Hearing and Speech will administer an abbreviated hearing test to determine if you have a problem. This screening is not for people who already have hearing aids.

Save Your Back

Eight out of 10 people experience back pain at some point in their lives, according to the National Institutes of Health. Learn how you can maximize your back strengths and minimize your back pain. One of our physical therapists, like Sibley’s Chris Marrow, will share important information about saving your back. See Our Calendar for the next date of Save Your Back.

Fall Prevention

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.
