Build strength, coordination and balance attending our falls prevention day program
Our individually tailored program focuses on building strength, coordination and balance while incorporating safety strategies to promote independence and reduce the risk of falls. We also have a falls prevention group, which is designed to improve your knowledge of falls prevention strategies.
About the program
Our falls prevention day rehabilitation program is led by our multidisciplinary team, which includes physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, hydrotherapists, occupational therapists and nursing staff. As part of this program, you will also have regular clinical reviews with a rehabilitation specialist.
This program, which is offered on a sessional basis on set days and times a week, 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 due to symptoms related to other conditions which are causing balance and safety issues
Falls prevention programs are available as either inpatient programs or day programs.
