My Therapy Story By Rosamond Peery

I enjoy therapy at St. William’s, with the one and togetherness.

Explained all exercises and activities. Did some things before – picking up things floor, get myself up from floor. Felt better after exercises.

Would recommend it to anyone.

FALLS PREVENTION AWARENESS WEEK September 20—24th, 2021

Falls are the main reason older people lose their independence. 

Are you at risk?

Four things you can do to prevent falls:

  1. Begin an exercise program to improve your leg strength and balance.
  2. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review your medications.
  3. Get annual eye check-ups and update your eyeglasses.
  4. Make your home safer by:
    1. Remove clutter & trip hazards
    1. Put railings on all stairs and add grab bars in the bathroom
    1. Have good lighting, especially on stairs.

Contact your local Big Stone Therapists at St. William’s Living Center Outpatient Therapy Clinic by calling 218-338-1014 for information on exercise, fall prevention programs, and options for improving home safety.
