COVID-19 Safety During Your Appointment

All patients will be asked to wear a mask and be screened for symptoms prior to entering the building. Please call to cancel your appointment if you are experiencing any symptoms.

Although our building is a Post-Acute Care facility, our Outpatient Therapy Patients will enter directly into the therapy gym and will not walk through the rest of the building. Social distancing protocols are observed and our equipment is cleaned thoroughly between patients.

Your safety is our priority. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Fall Prevention

1 in 4 older adults reports falling. The CDC developed the STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries) initiative to provide tools and education to prevent falls. Here are some simple steps that are recommended to reduce the risk of falls.

  • Have your healthcare provider review your medicines
  • Exercise to improve your balance and strength
  • Have your eyes and feet checked
  • Make your home safer

If you have fallen or feel unsteady when walking, talk to your healthcare provider about your concerns. Many falls are preventable. Our rehabilitation team can assess your walking, strength, balance, and home safety and create a custom program to help keep you active and independent.
