Are you at risk for a fall? Are you 65 plus?
The Health Committee is sponsoring an event with Ottawa Public Health for a free, quick screening clinic on falls and fall prevention. The Falls Screening Clinic will be offered to seniors aged 65 and over on June 10 here at Emmanuel United Church. This clinic will involve taking your blood pressure, evaluating your gait and balance, and sitting down with a public health nurse one on one to discuss your personal fall risk. The screening takes 15-20 minutes and all who attend will receive information on preventing falls.
If you are interested in this clinic we ask you to call the office, or speak to Debbie Meek or Don Hamilton and give them your name and telephone number, in order to know how many we will be dealing with and how many nurses will be needed. The cut-off date for registration is May 19 and after that date you will be contacted with an appointment time for June 10, to see the nurse.
