Our team includes occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nurses and support workers who have specialist knowledge about falls prevention. They can help patients to help themselves and offer advice to family, friends and carers.
We help to identify why our patients may have fallen or feel at risk of falls. We then provide intervention to help maintain their independence and prevent hospital admissions.
This may include providing patients with exercises or functional activities to develop their muscle strength and balance. We may also provide equipment or arrange minor changes to the home and advise on safely performing daily living activities.
We also provide assessment and advice to maintain bone health and reduce injury.
Our service is mainly provided in patient homes including care homes. We offer balance classes at Mansfield Community Hospital and Ashfield Health Village.
Referrals are received from health professionals, social services and voluntary groups. Call the Patient Line on 01623 781 891 for more information.
