The Falls Prevention Clinic will be present again this year on Thursday from 7:30-10 a.m. and Friday from 8-10 a.m. The clinic is designed for anyone who has a history or a fear of falls and anyone who has fallen during any of these activities: Eating out, shopping, traveling or keeping up with grandchildren, getting in and out of a car, shower or bathtub, going up and down stairs, getting up and down from chairs, sofa or bed, or picking up something from the floor.

The OhioHealth Falls Prevention Clinic provides recommendations to help individuals decrease their risk of falling and improve quality of life by increasing confidence in moving around safely. The screening will consist of a brief questionnaire and two, falls risk assessments completed by an occupational therapist and to help identify the level of falls risk.

Only cash or check payments will be accepted. No credit cards. If you have questions, call (740) 383.8559.
