Disclaimer: Please note that this provision is not running whilst COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are in place. We are exploring ways of making the offer virtual.
Crawley Wellbeing run a free 20 week Falls Prevention course for the over 65s or those concerned about their balance.
With the help of qualified, specialist instructors, the ‘Wellbalanced’ programme is an evidence-based intervention designed to reduce risk of falling. ‘Wellbalanced’ is designed to help prevent falls and keep people moving as they enter later life.
Your client or patient should be referred to the course if they need assistance in the following areas:
- Improving their strength and stability.
- Building their confidence.
- Learning what to do if they have a fall. If your patient is worried about falling so they have to take extra care but they have not had several falls.
All participants will undertake functional assessments prior to and on completion of the course and may be referred on to a maintenance class at the start of the programme and also on completion, the next steps will then be discussed with you or the client.
