Ready, Steady, Go! is all about preventing first and future falls.

The event is a fun way to:

  • Assess your risk of falling
  • Determine the reasons why you may be at risk of falling
  • Learn how to avoid falls and confidently enjoy the activities you love

Event activities include:

IS IT YOUR BODY?
A physical therapist will take you through simple activities to determine your fall risk.

IS IT YOUR MEDICATION?
Bring a list of the current medications you take, including the dose and when you take them. A pharmacist can look at your list to determine if your medications put you at risk for falls.

IS IT YOUR HOME?
Learn to create a falls-free environment at home.

IS IT YOUR EYES?
An occupational therapist will do a quick screening to see if your vision is putting you at risk for falls.

PLUS – Try Tai Chi! Blood pressure checks, nutrition information, refreshments and more!
