We provide assessment and rehabilitation for adults who have fallen or who are at high risk of falling. Our team consisting of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and a part time podiatrist, supported by assistant practitioners.
We work with patients and their carers within their own home or in the local community. We offer an individual treatment plan to restore a person's independence and confidence and reduce hospital admission. This may include an exercise programme to improve balance and strength, advice on how to complete everyday tasks in a way to make them easier and safer, and guidance on foot care and suitable footwear to help prevent falls.
Patients may attend an eight week falls prevention programme at Venmore Community Care Centre, which is run in conjunction with Liverpool City Council.
This provides a group based exercise programme, discussion groups and individual therapy input.
