Falls Prevention

“We are delighted to announce the launch of the Falls Prevention and Strength and Balance Service for local people in Bracknell and Slough. This preventative service will work to significantly reduce the burden on health professionals and will also increase awareness in the local community to enable people to take care of their health.” – Leena Sankla, Project Director, Solutions 4 Health.

“Since coming to the FallsFree4Life classes I’m more confident when I go out. It has helped me with my balance and tripping. It has also helped me leave the house and met many friends. The instructors are excellent, very friendly and helpful” – FallsFree4Life Participant

FallsFree4Life Falls Prevention, Strength and Balance Service for Bracknell Forest and Slough residents

Falls and fall-related injuries are a common and serious problem for older people with 1 in 3 people aged 65 and over falling each year. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths and nonfatal injuries and are estimated to cost the NHS more than £2.3 billion per year.

FallsFree4Life is a community based multifactorial falls risk assessment and prevention programme focused upon the primary prevention of falls (before experiencing a fall) as well as secondary prevention. FallsFree4Life aims to help individuals make the necessary changes to live strong, independent and balanced lives and integrates an entire pathway of care in the community.

Physiotherapists and Wellness Coaches carry out detailed assessments of the individual’s falls risk and collaborate with family members and other health professionals to develop a package of community-based support.

Our comprehensive multifactorial falls risk assessment includes:

  • Falls self-confidence test
  • A basic questionnaire assessment
  • Footwear and food care assessment
  • Falls free referral tool
  • Quantitative Timed Up and Go (QTUG) test
    This will determine your level of risk for falling, and place you within low-medium-and high risk
  • Home risk assessment

FallsFree4Life is currently delivered in partnership with the Public Health teams at Bracknell Forest Council and Slough Borough Council. To find out more about FallsFree4Life please visit www.fallsfree4life.co.uk
