On Tuesday October 1st, 2014, COR partnered with Bergen County Senior Services to participate at the Health EASE Senior Wellness Fair. Danielle Spagnolo, DPT performed Falls Risk Assessment screenings on the senior community by having willing participants take the Time Up and Go Test, and then reviewing the individual results with each participant.
Office Manager Barbara Van Wettering was on hand to greet the seniors, answer questions and surprise the attendees with several fun giveaways. This event gave us a unique opportunity to connect with the senior community and address the common fear of falling in their home.
All participants passed the test with flying colors and were pleased to hear that their balance was doing just fine. What’s more fun, all participants loved getting key chains and jar openers! We look forward to working with the Bergen County Senior Services in 2015!
