CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas is holding a balance clinic for the residents at Atria Sutton Assisted Living on August 17.
Having good balance means being able to control and maintain your body’s position while you are moving or remaining still. The part of the inner ear responsible for balance is the vestibular system. Good balance is important to help you get around, stay independent, and carry out daily activities. Independence is a big thing for seniors. Balance problems are among the most common reasons that older adults seek help from a doctor. As you get older, many people experience problems with their sense of balance.
