Falls PreventionFalls prevention service in Cheshire
What does it do?
Falls can be devastating. They can result in a loss of confidence and an increase in anxiety about future falls.
Age UK Cheshire's Falls Prevention Project works to reduce the number of people who need to attend the Accident & Emergency Department because they have fallen in their homes.
By carrying out home visits to individuals and talks to groups, we are able to highlight possible hazardous areas within the home and in turn make minor alterations where necessary.
The service is available in Chester, Ellesmere Port and Neston and surrounding areas.
If you are in any doubt about the availability of the service in your area then please contact us.
A Falls Prevention Coordinator will telephone you to arrange an appointment to visit. The Coordinator will discuss with you any concerns you may have about falling in your home and look at possible causes.
These may include:
- Use of steps and stairs
- Access to the bath
- Feet and footwear
- Rugs etc.
