Calling all Active Seniors!

Submitted By Mary Anderson

You're reading this because you are able to get out and about and pursue the activities and interests you enjoy. And you often find yourself in the company of others who are able to do the same.

But do you know any seniors whose circumstances make it difficult to participate in activities outside the home? Maybe they are frail or have difficulty walking due to balance issues or other handicaps. They may have fallen in the past and have restricted their activities as a result, becoming more at risk for falls. If this sounds like someone you know, consider telling them about the Fall Prevention program at LIFE ElderCare.

At absolutely no cost, the Fall Prevention program will create a customized exercise routine to help the senior develop better balance.

A nursing student will come to the senior's home for an hour, once a week, to provide instruction on the proper way to perform each exercise. At the end of 12 weeks, many participants have remarked on how much their balance improved, and also how much more confident they are about preventing a fall.

So, at the end of your active day, won't you take some time to think about someone who cannot join you in your active day and would benefit from the Fall Prevention program? We would love to add another deserving senior to our "well-balanced" team!

Take a moment and give your friend a call. Here's Sandy's phone number: (510) 574-2087. She will answer any questions about the program and she can set the initial appointment with those who are ready to begin. Now is the perfect time.

Tri City seniors, sixty years of age and older, no matter your health issues, bed-ridden, chair bound or simply afraid of falling... by doing custom designed exercises daily your mobility will improve. LIFE ElderCare's Fall Prevention program includes a personalized 12-week in home exercise program, a home safety check and a medication review. Learn about the benefits towards decreasing the risk for falls and fear of falling.

Is that the phone I hear ringing? I surely hope so.
