A Fall Prevention Event will be held on September 21st in the Gardens at Hedrick Medical Center. The event is held through a partnership between Hedrick Medical Center and Livingston County Health Center, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Ann Burchett from the Health Center says this is part of their Aging in Place initiative.
Burchett says they will also have someone on hand to review your medication list to determine if some medications can cause you to feel lightheaded, dizzy, or sleepy, which can also make a person more likely to fall.”
She says there will be demonstrations and screenings.
Door prizes and giveaways will also be available at the event. For more information about the event, persons can contact Luci Skaggs at 660-214-8170 or Ann Burchett at 660-646-5506.
