Help with falls in later life.
Falls and unsteadiness are common problems in later life but are not a normal part of getting older. Balance and movement are complex activities which we take for granted throughout most of our lives, but various factors can affect them, and reductions in mobility and confidence after a fall can lead to a progressive loss of health, fitness and independence. Falling more than once in a year, or any fall that results in a need for medical attention, suggests that there might be an underlying cause, and a thorough assessment is required.
Medical conditions like Parkinson’s, arthritis, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological difficulties (brain and nervous system) contribute to falls. Sometimes several mild problems occur in unison resulting in an increased risk of falls.
Falls are the number one mobility problem that older people experience. Falls result in broken bones, bruises, and loss of confidence.
If you want help, please contact us and we can arrange our consultant to see you and assess the possible causes and risk factors for falls. Your consultant may need assessments from our other specialists (e.g., a physiotherapist) to ensure that a comprehensive treatment plan is developed.
