Falls prevention training course with Fit For Life.

Falls Prevention- Common Falls Risk Factors - Workshop

Overview 

This workshop involves your team experiencing some of the main risks that present with age. We look at single indicated risks specific to older adults. The practical element is hugely valuable in helping your team to understand the challenges the older population face.

 

Knowing the association between poor vision, foot pain, reduced stability and increased risk of falls, is a part of your Falls Prevention Policy. Giving your team support in knowledge will help with their overall growth as a valued team member.

We have found that with real experience, the attendees gain so much more from the workshop. We have equipment that attendees use, and working with peers, they go about set tasks and then discuss their experiences in the group, to help everyone to take away valuable learning points. They relate the symptoms to real residents they are caring for and gain a greater knowledge on how that person finds tasks.
