Reducing Falls When Supporting Independence
Clients with and without neurological impairment are at risk of falls.
An ageing population has led to falls being high on the agenda and we at the Island Rehabilitation Practice recognise the need to train care givers in this area.
Why are patients suffering from dementia, stroke, M.S or any other neurological condition prone to falling? How can you reduce this risk? How can you manage the risk and still encourage a client to be mobile?
Although we all know that ‘risk’ can never actually be emiminated, we will explore all of these questions in this training session and come up with practical ways of reducing the risk of falls whilst carrying out Activities of Daily Living (ADL).
