Community Falls Team
What We Do
Liverpool Community Falls Service
The Community Falls Team is a Multi-disciplinary team consisting of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, and a part time Podiatrist, who are supported by Assistant Practitioner staff. We provide assessment and rehabilitation for adults who have fallen or who are at high risk of falling. We work with patients and their carers within their own home or in the local community.
The aim of this service is to provide an individual treatment plan using the Care Aims model, to restore 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. More information about the Falls Prevention Programme can be downloaded in the leaflet.
More general information about the Community Falls Team can be found by downloading the team patient information leaflet.
