|This special quarterly meeting of the FPSCC is open to all and will focus on transitioning to the “new normal” after over a year of pandemic restrictions. The topic, Social Isolation and the Impact to our Physical Wellbeing, will consider how we can create safe spaces to which staff and clients can return, as well as ways to assist and inspire everyone to get safely moving again. Highlights of best-practices Falls Prevention Programs will be shared. Please note: Though this program is geared towards professionals who serve older adults, all are welcome. The keynote speaker will be Patrick Arbore, EdD, IOA, who will explore how to move mental mindsets to increase physically moving for health.|
