Healthy Aging Clinic June 29

The Falls Prevention Program of the Holmes County General Health District is sponsoring a Healthy Aging Clinic for the 60 and older population at Ripley Church of Christ, 12298 County Road 330, Big Prairie, on Thursday, June 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This clinic is not income based, and anyone is encouraged to participate.

The Healthy Aging Clinic will provide free fall risk screenings, hearing screenings and vision screenings. Each screening will be no more than 30 minutes in length.

The fall risk screenings will be provided by trained Medical Reserve Corps volunteers of the health district. The individual will be screened in three different fall risk assessments. The MRC can make a referral with the agreement of the individual to the Falls Prevention Program. Results from the fall risk screening will be shared with the individual and documentation results of the screening.

Modern Hearing Solutions will conduct the hearing screenings. Education on the results of the screening will be reviewed with the individual with potential referrals.

Kerry MacQueen of the health district and Kristin Yabroff, RN and MRC volunteer, are certified adult vision screeners of the Ohio Affiliate of Prevent Blindness. They will provide this service as a screening only. No diagnosis will occur. State vision provider information will be made available to those who participate in the vision screening.

Call MacQueen at the health district at 330-674-5035 ext. 251 to schedule an appointment or for questions. No walk-in appointments are available.
