Injury from a fall is a big concern for families and seniors. Falls can result in fractures, and worse, the loss of independence, taking away the ability to live at home, use stairs, and grocery shop. We can evaluate your risk of falling with a fall assessment. Since certain medical conditions increase the likelihood of a fall, proper assessment and intervention can help us improve these situations and reduce the risk.
The thought of not being able to remember things is frightening for anyone. We all get a little anxious if we forget the little things–such as where we placed the car keys or friends’ names. Though troubling, these may be routine effects of aging and not indicative of memory loss. Severe memory loss and confusion is a different matter. And it’s important to understand that these conditions may be a result of medications. Our Geriatric Consultative Team can determine if drug interactions are causing the problem.
