Fall Stop Service provides support to people over the age of 50, who are residents of Enfield and who have experienced a fall or are at risk of falling.
We're commissioned by North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group to support the Falls Prevention pathway and work closely with our clinician partners from Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Trust. St Michael's Falls Prevention Service, North Middlesex University College Hospital and Chase Farm.
We know the covid-19 profoundly affected people's ability to get out and about and reduced people's confidence. We returned to in person activities in May/June 2021 and noticed people had been moving less, sitting more and lost confidence in walking distances. This had increased risk of falls for many people, but especially older people, or those with long-term health conditions.
If you've fallen in the past, making changes to reduce your chances of having a fall can also help you overcome any fear of falling. We can work with you to make simple changes to your home and doing exercises to improve your strength and balance.
Health & Wellbeing Navigators are there to offer support and guidance to help feel more control and
