Event Details

Join us for a series of workshops presented by Bringing Back the Village!

Explore the dynamics of aging and fall prevention in this informative class. Our experienced Physical Therapist, Dr. Tim Guiden, will delve into the root causes of falls, including balance and strength deficits, improper assistive device use, hazardous environments, and age-related factors like declining eyesight and slower reaction times. Gain valuable insights into the aftermath of falls and receive personalized tips on preventing them. This class is designed to benefit seniors and their caregivers or families, offering a chance for interactive discussion and individualized fall prevention strategies. Join us and take proactive steps towards a safer, healthier future.
