Managing Your Risk of Falling

This is the second in a series of three information seminars for 2018.

One of the significant issues that arises with Parkinson's disease is the risk of falling. Taking a fall can lead to injuries, hospital stays and other unexpected occurrences. One factor that can increase the risk of falling is Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension, or nOH. If you experience dizzy spells or moments of lightheadedness, this could be caused by nOH. It's very beneficial to better understand this condition and what can be done about it.

Falling can occur for many reasons, especially when you have PD. Knowing how best to prevent those falls and manage that risk overall is critical information. We'll be providing the insights and the information you need to help you stay on your feet.

The seminar is free to attend and refreshments will be served. Doors will open at 10 AM with the first presentation beginning at 10:30 AM.
