I wanted to take the time to promote this upcoming Fall Risk workshop sponsored by UC Davis. The program is called “Stepping On” and is a community program that has been proven to reduce falls in older adults. The course meets for two hours each week for seven weeks. The workshops are led by a health professional and a peer leader.
This course would be great for anyone who is:
1. 65 or older
2. Has fallen or is at risk for falls
3. Lives at home
4. Does not have dementia
5. Can walk independently (may use a cane)
The course details are as follows:
Dates: June 6th – July 17th on Tuesdays from 1:00 to 3:00PM
Location: Kiwanis Family House at 2875 50th Street, Sacramento, CA 95817
Registration is required and refreshments will be provided. This workshop is FREE and can be a great help to those adults that are at a high risk of falls.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.
Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
