Care Home Falls Project

The North Lincolnshire Community Therapies team is rolling out a project aimed at supporting care homes to manage falls within the care home setting. This project involves providing an education package to care home staff on in house strategies that can be completed prior to a referral being made into the therapy service in order to increase care home autonomy (including a demonstration of a chair based exercise session that could be continued with as appropriate). The project also involves the development of a link therapist to act as a support with any queries regarding to the management of falls for residents.

If you have any queries regarding this please email Claire Dawson, Clinical Lead Physiotherapist

Claire.dawson4@nhs.net who would be happy to address them as able and would be really grateful to receive any expressions of interest in participating in this project.
