Falls prevention is an important aspect our physiotherapists focuses on in the elderly. Statistics show that 30% of adults over the age of 65 falls at least once in a year, which is concerning. Major reasons for these falls are a lack of strength, mobility and balance. Primary Care Services physiotherapists will assess everyone in your residence for their mobility status and give an outcome regarding their risk of falling.
At 1 Primary Care Services, we have specifically tailored fall prevention programs customised by physiotherapists to improve your residents' strength, balance and mobility, reducing their chances of falling.
In the aged care setting, our team will run exercise classes focusing on falls prevention once to twice a week or more if required. This reduces their chances of falling and is also a fun and social activity with other residents.
