Does cognitive impairment increase a patient’s risk for falls?

In addition to its importance for understanding how we understand speech, Cognitive Screenings helps us understand a patient’s executive function, which is the domain most commonly associated with gait dysfunction. Early detection is key.

We strive to assess patients holistically, understanding how their hearing, balance and cognition affect their daily lives. Our plan of care focuses on preventative, rehabilitative and strategies for impactful outcomes.

Thank you for continuing to let us be a part of your comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to care.
