Yesterday, ACCT's senior property in Vergennes hosted a Stay Steady VT program where five Physical Therapists did a presentation for a group of 28 people, then did personalized Fall Risk Assessments for 24 people, including 20 SASH Participants.
Stay Steady is one of SASH's most important events of the year. Approximately 50 percent of all senior deaths begin with a fall, which can then lead to other negative health events and deterioration. Falling is not a normal part of aging, so licensed professionals doing risk assessments and sharing how each particular participant can reduce their personal risk is crucial to them remaining independent.
ACCT staff members share news and information about upcoming events.
