Hospital offering fall prevention classes and adult influenza shots


If falling or losing your balance is a concern you face you may want to consider a fall prevention class being offered by the therapy department at Parmer Medical Center. “Fall Prevention” is a four session course that will provide information on balance and safety in your environment.

Participants will learn fall prevention, how to fall if a fall is inevitable, and what to do once you fall. Attendees will learn exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and balance as well as changes to reduce fall risks at home. Classes will be held on Mondays, October 7 through October 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Class size is limited.

To sign up for the fall course or to get more information, call the therapy department at 806-250-2754, extension 146.


Parmer Medical Center will offer adult influenza (flu) vaccinations at Friona Senior Citizens located at 1410 Washington on Thursday October 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The charge for the vaccination will be totally covered if the recipient is a subscriber to traditional Medicare. For all other vaccination recipients the cost for the shot is $29.00.

Medicaid will not cover the charge for the vaccinations received at Friona Senior Citizens but will cover the cost for vaccinations received at Friona Rural Health Clinic located at 1307 Cleveland Avenue. For more information call Rhonda Wilkins at 806-250-2754.
