It is no secret that we are living longer! In the next 50 years, it is expected that our geriatric population will more than double. But how do we keep ourselves healthy as we age? ACTIVITY! One of the best things to do is to keep moving.
People say all the time “Well, I am this old. You can’t expect too much out of an old lady/man.” Yes we can! At For Life Therapy, we believe age is only a number, it is not a limitation. We continually challenge our geriatric population into new activities. We definitely are not limited by a person’s age. We take careful consideration of their medical history, current functional status and current physical status before we get to work. But we will definitely keep you moving!
At For Life Therapy, we are PROactive and not REactive which is a huge benefit to the geriatric population. We use this approach to ward off things such as deconditioning, loss of strength, stiff joints, poor balance and the dreaded FALLS. We have found that if we address these areas right away and continue to create challenges, we have seen a decrease in fall risk.
If you are concerned about your fall risk status or the fall risk status of your loved one, don’t hesitate to call For Life Therapy today!
