Infographic: Tips To Prevent Falls
Do you or a loved one feel unsteady when out and about? Cancer patients – regardless of age – are at high risk for falls because of side effects from treatment or the disease itself. Be proactive and prepared to prevent falls by following the tips below. Moffitt's rehab team offers a one-on-one evaluation and assessment of your balance, strength, safety and mobility to help lessen the risk of falling. Ask your doctor for a referral to Moffitt's Physical Therapy Department. Moffitt will also host a free fall prevention screening event on National Fall Prevention Awareness Day on Sept. 22.
