Iowa Specialty Hospital is proud to present, Stepping On, a fall prevention workshop. This 7 week workshop will be held every Wednesday from October 4th through November 15th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in the lower level of the Belmond Campus.
During the workshops, participants receive support from trained leaders and other workshop participants, learn and practice strength and balance exercises, and learn how medications, vision, safe footwear, and home modifications can affect their risk of falls. Special guests presenters, that are experts in your community including a pharmacist, eye doctor, physical therapist, and a community safety worker, will be in attendance at various sessions.
Participants must be 65 years of age or older, live independently, have had a fall within the last year or have a fear of falling. Please note that there is a one-time $15 fee for this workshop. Please bring the fee to the first session. If you are writing a check, make it payable to Iowa Specialty Hospital. We are not able to take credit cards.
An eligibility questionnaire must be completed at the time of phone registration. Please call Brooke Nerlien at 515-602-9826 to register, complete the questionnaire, or for information.
