Central Michigan University (CMU) is providing a unique Home Visit Fall Risk Screening Program to aging area adults as part of our Healthy Aging initiative. The program offers a free wellness check and fall risk screening home visit by a team of CMU medical, health profession and social work students and one faculty member. Team members conduct a wellness check-up focused on reducing fall risk which lasts approximately 1-2 hours. This opportunity also provides students’ exposure to their communities and develops skills to assist older adult patients. This program is supported by a Michigan Health Endowment Grant. The program is voluntary and is offered at no cost to participants.
The program’s goal is to promote healthy aging so participants may stay independent in their home longer. Participants will be able to provide direct feedback to help further develop the students into competent health professionals and physicians.
The free wellness check includes:
- Fall Risk Screening
- A medication review
- Visual acuity and hearing test
- Basic oral health exam
- Foot exam and more
- The ability to volunteer to support the training of new doctors
