Our falls prevention service known as "the Balance Programme" provides information and support to older people in Trafford who have fallen or are at risk of falls. Our Co-ordinator is a fully qualified postural stability instructor.
The purpose of our service is to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions or readmission by helping reduce the occurance of falls in the older populaton of Trafford whether they live in the community or in a care home.
We will continue to develop this service over time but at present we provide:
