Why? What's your Purpose... Why are You Taking Balance University?

Motivation can be hard to find when it comes to exercise. Even more frustrating, trying to convince a friend or loved they are a fall risk and should enter a fall prevention program like Balance University.

Here are some tips that may help with a lack of motivation when it comes to fall prevention.

Check out my blog!

Seniors suffer the most after a natural disaster and among the frail, natural disasters are often fatal. I saw firsthand what impact Hurricane Irma had on my clients that stayed behind to endure the onslaught. Hurricane Irma made landfall in Southwest Florida as a Category 4 and caused $50 billion in damage, making it the fifth costliest hurricane to hit the United States according to The National Hurricane Center.

We began Balance University today at Bradford Square!! I’m really looking forward to seeing the progress from the residents.

Why do Natural Disasters Disproportionately Affect Seniors 10/11/2022

Why do Natural Disasters Disproportionately Affect Seniors

I have witnessed the devastating impacts of hurricanes on Seniors firsthand. The disruption in med schedules, dialysis, the ability to maintain a continuous oxygen supply and the heat (due to power outages, the air conditioning will not function) that ensues once the hurricane dissipates and the consequences of storm surge, rain and wind leave a trail of destruction.

What a week it’s been… has been devastating for SWFL!

No blog post or videos this week. We haven’t had internet service since Tuesday but that is the least of our worries. My family and home are safe but there are many thousands of others who have lost everything.

Please keep SWFL in your prayers. 🙏

What are the Top 5 Causes for Falls in the Senior Population 09/26/2022

What are the Top 5 Causes for Falls in the Senior Population

There have been estimations that as many as 10 million people in the US alone have Osteoporosis. Plus, fall risks escalates as the number of risk factors increases. The 1-year risk of falling doubles for every added risk factor. It starts at 8% with no risk factors and increases by up to 78% with four risk factors!

Can Virtual Reality help Seniors Improve their Balance?

I found some interesting outcomes in my research being done with Seniors using Virtual Reality (VR) to improve their balance and prevent falls!

Other benefits, besides potentially improving their balance, that VR can bring to Seniors include travel. The opportunity for those in long-term memory care or those that are too frail to travel are great candidates for "VR travel". With just a headset and a phone, Seniors can explore any place in the world, take tours of musuems and even visit other countries!

What does Healthy Aging really mean? 08/13/2022

What does Healthy Aging really mean?

I hear a lot of Seniors tell me they want to live at home for as long as possible. Honestly, most Seniors would rather spend the last days in their homes. But, as we age our bodies deteriorate and breakdown. Healthy Aging refers to the ability to stay healthy enough so that the twilight years of your life, you’re able to be mobile and as independent as possible. I explore this topic of Healthy Aging and discover what happens to Seniors that are independent but, ultimately, end up in a long-term care facility.

How Often Do Seniors Fall On Stairs

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-often-do-seniors-fall-stairs-chris-r-williams-cpt-/?published=t

Seniors come across stairs more than you think... So, how much of a fall risk to stairs pose to our Seniors? I explore this topic in the article below. If you would like to learn more, go to our YouTube channel (Emeritus Health) and watch the lecture I gave at FGCU Academy for continuing education.

How Often Do Seniors Fall On Stairs I wonder how many Seniors encounter stairs in their daily lives? Maybe the stairs are in their homes or they come across stairs entering the theatre or movie theatre. Maybe the stairs are at the entrance of a favorite restaurant or their community.
