We are trained in the ‘Stepping On’ program, which offers older people a way of reducing falls and at the same time increasing self confidence in situations where they are at risk of falling.
Falls are a serious problem, but can be prevented at any age.This program, which was developed in Australia and has been implemented in the USA and internationally is considered to be one of the most effective falls prevention programs available, giving people the confidence to undertake their everyday activities safely. Participation in a program like Stepping On will help older people maintain independence and give them confidence in their mobility so they are able to undertake their everyday activities safely and without the risk of falling
The Stepping On program incorporates a group setting plus individualized follow-up. It covers a range of issues, including falls and risk, strength and balance exercises, home hazards, safe footwear, vision and falls, safety in public places, community mobility, coping after a fall, and understanding how to initiate a medication review.
