Wellness Specialist Provides Falls Prevention Expertise
It is Falls Prevention Awareness Week and, as always, the message that falling is not a normal part of aging resonates with the population served across the St. John’s spectrum of senior services.
This morning, on this first day of Fall, St. John’s Meadows Wellness Specialist Jodi Brodzinski joined Fox Rochester’s “Good Day Rochester” to share expertise on everyday practices and movements that can help prevent catastrophic falls for everyone, particularly older adults.
“No fall is a minor fall, it is very serious,” Jodi told 13WHAM/Fox Rochester reporter Matt Malloy. “So knowing what your posture is, your form, your balance, your alignment: it’s key.”
Jodi joined St. John’s this summer and now leads nearly a dozen weekly fitness classes across St. John’s independent living communities.
