FREE Mobility Screening

Wednesday, September 25, 2019, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Let Sunset assess your gait, balance, and strength—and help keep you safe from a fall or injury

Every eleven seconds, an older adult receives emergency room treatment for injuries sustained in a fall. Falls cause more than 2.8 million injuries every year, resulting in more than 800,000 hospitalizations. And in the next two years, as the population ages, financial costs from older adult falls are expected to reach $68 billion.

By participating in a mobility screening, you are taking positive steps to help keep yourself safe, healthy, and independent.

A mobility screening will identify any shortcomings in your gait, balance, and strength. Early detection of any mobility deficits can lessen the risk of a possible fall and/or injury.
