Free Health Screenings in October

27 Sep

The YWCA will be offering free balance, adult health and memory screenings during October. More information below.

Building Better Balance Screenings
Tuesday, October 4th, 9:00 am – noon

Building Better Balance Screenings are free and open to the public. The service will be provided by trained screeners at the YWCA, 185 S. French Broad Ave. The screening will take 15 minutes and include a few questions and completion of one balance activity. The screener will use a screening process outlined by the NC Fall Prevention Coalition to determine the level of fall risk. Participants will then receive information on resources to continue to build better balance and reduce the likelihood of a fall. Please call 254-7206 x 213 to schedule an appointment or just drop in for a first available appointment.

Adult Health and Memory Screenings
Friday, October 14, 10:00 am – noon

Adult Health and Memory Screenings by MemoryCare include Memory Testing, Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar. Why? To identify health problems that may impact healthy aging and improve chances of getting appropriate medical care. Educational Materials will be available at the screening. Find out about your own health and learn about community resources for aging adults in the Asheville area.  For more information, contact MemoryCare at 828-771-2219 or visit our website at www.memorycare.org.
