We are pleased to congratulate Wendy Jones, PT, on earning her specialty certification for fall prevention. She completed a course in California which certified her as a Fallproofâ„¢ Balance and Mobility Specialist Instructor. The Fallproofâ„¢ course is designed to provide physical activity instructors and health care professionals with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to implement an evidence-based balance and mobility training program for older adults at moderate-to-high risk for falls in community and residential care settings. The Fallproofâ„¢ Balance & Mobility Specialist Instructor Certificate Program is the first program of its kind to be offered in the U.S.

Wendy is our Outpatient Coordinator at The Springs at Tanasbourne in Hillsboro, OR. This residential retirement community has Assisted Living Services, Memory Care, and Independent Living apartments. Having received this specialty certification, Wendy will be able to conduct individual and group classes focusing on fall prevention.
Wendy’s scores were so high that she received a special invitation to return to California and become a Master Instructor in Fallproofâ„¢! She is very excited to be able to make a positive impact on seniors with this new certification by addressing mobility, falls and safety. Congratulations, Wendy!
