Falls Prevention and Safety
A fall and the subsequent fear of future injuries it causes often results in you being unable to do the things you want or need to do. We will meet with you, understand if you have had any falls in the past and discuss your needs. With a focus on your health and wellbeing, together we will develop an in-home care plan tailored to you to enable you to stay safe, independent and confident on your feet to keep you in your home for as long as possible.
Our complete falls prevention services include:
- Short-term programs: designed by a physiotherapy team to help improve your mobility, balance and strength to give you back the confidence in your own abilities.
- Personal alarms: give yourself and your loved ones peace of mind knowing that someone is there to answer your call for help any time of the day or night.
- Short Term Restorative Care: a goal-focused, multi-disciplinary program that can assist with your safety and the prevention of falls.
- Home modifications: typically involve bathrooms and kitchens, so that everyday tasks can be carried out. Benches and workspaces can be lowered, taps and handles changed, rails, ramps and shower hoses installed, and doorways and hallways widened to accommodate chairs or frames. Sometimes a functional room such as a bathroom can be installed on a ground floor. Garden modifications are part of making a home safe and easy to navigate. Garden modifications can include installing safety sensor lights, sprinkler systems, ramps and rails and altering gate handles.
