Physiotherapy, Exercise and Falls Prevention
Exercise and Falls Prevention Programs and Services
The research evidence supports a multi-factorial approach as effective in a reducing the number and frequency of falls. The HNHB LHIN has funded a number of falls prevention programs that address the many factors which contribute to falls amongst seniors, including:
Comprehensive community based falls assessment and referral clinics
Free falls prevention classes
Free exercise classes geared at improving functional ability
The majority of these programs are LHIN wide allowing seniors to access services close to home or in their home. Decisions related to the location of programs were based on the analysis and mapping of HNHB CCAC data about where seniors at high risk of falls live.
