Falls among people over the age of 65 are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalisations in Australia. Even falls that result in no injury or minimal injury can affect quality of life, activity levels, independence and confidence.
At Heroes, we want to help every senior, and anyone at a high-falls risk, improve their balance, minimise their falls risk and ultimately remain independent for as long as possible.
Allied Health Professionals play a vital role in reducing falls within the older population in the community.
Our Falls Prevention classes are designed and run by trained physiotherapists and are aimed at improving balance, strength and coordination.
Our OTs can also arrange a home safety assessment and modifications to ensure your house is as safe as possible to minimise your falls risk at home.
