It is often said that balance is the key to life.  Balance issues can cause lots of problems especially as we get older.  And it is not just balance of work and family or free time.  We are talking about actual physical balance.  You or a loved one may have balance problems.  Perhaps you have suffered a fall or are concerned that your balance issues may cause you to fall and break a leg, arm or hip.

Good Shepherd Fairview Home, 80 Fairview Avenue in Binghamton, will be conducting a free balance clinic from 9 AM - Noon on Thursday, June 27.  Sponsored by Penn York Medical Supplies clinicians and health experts will conduct a balance screening.

According to a release from Good Shepherd Fairview Home visitors will have the opportunity to meet therapists and find out more about how physical, occupational and speech therapy can help you stay active during the aging process.

There is no admission fee and reservations are not required. There will be raffles and other prizes given away during the three-hour event.
