Preventing falls and harm from falls
Rate of falls are high in residential aged care facilities, with 1 in 2 residents falling within a 6 months period.
Our Physio Co team helps in identifying the false risk clients and reducing the incidents of falls in the elderly.
How it works
Assigning risk of falls for the residents and implementing an action plan with follow up reviews
Increase awareness by talking to the resident and carers about risk and prevention
Room audits and interventions to modify environmental hazards (lighting, furniture, wet surfaces)
Increasing exercise and physical activity to help prevent falls
