A physical therapist will provide a simple 15-20 minute balance screening and fall risk assessment free of charge.
Following the simple screening, the therapist will share results with each patient and provide recommendations based on screening results. Call St. Anthony's Physical Rehabilitation department at 217-347-1243 to register.
A topic will be presented followed by a group discussion. The purpose of this support group is to:
-Educate those contemplating bariatric surgery about the options, benefits, lifestyle changes and potential problems with the surgeries.
-Provide encouragement and support to those who have had the surgery to maintain lifestyle changes.
-Provide a place to obtain prerequisite support group meetings prior to surgery (Many surgeons require attendance at a support group as a prerequisite for the surgery.)
-Provide short educational sessions regarding nutrition, fitness and wellness.
