Build strength, coordination and balance in our tailored falls prevention program
This individually tailored program focuses on building strength, coordination and balance while incorporating safety strategies to promote independence and reduce the risk of falls. During your stay you may also attend our falls prevention group, which is designed to build your strategies to help prevent falls.
A comprehensive program for people at risk of falls
Our falls prevention program is led by our multidisciplinary team which includes physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, hydrotherapists, occupational therapists and nursing staff. As part of the program, you will also have regular clinical reviews with a rehabilitation specialist.
This program is suitable for people:
- who have had a recent fall-related injury or illness
- who have had an exacerbation of a condition causing balance problems
- who have a persisting or worsening disability and dependency related to other conditions or symptoms, which require rehabilitation because of balance and safety issues
Falls prevention programs are available as either inpatient programs or day programs.
