STEADI When You Fall
A ZOOM Presentation During our regular Stroke Survivors’ Meeting
Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 10:00-10:30 AM. Caregivers and family members are welcome to attend.
According to The Journal of Physical Therapy Science from PubMed Central, falling is one of the most common complications of stroke patients… and can lead to reduction of independence of activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, and transferring in patients. In addition, falling is a leading cause of fractures for 23–50% of stroke patients. Understanding the risks and causes of falls, plus learning tips and exercises to prevent them, becomes a major concern for all stroke survivors and their caregivers. Michelle Chung, a physical therapist at Memorial Care Long Beach Medical Center and Board member of Stroke Support Association, will cover the following topics, followed by a question-and-answer period:
- Causes of Falls
- Prevention of Falls
- Home Exercises
