Title:
Examination of the Warrington Falls Management and Prevention Service
Authors:
Caiels, James; Thurston, Miranda
Abstract:
This report discusses the Warrington Falls Management and Prevention Service. For older people, falls have a number of significant negative physical, social and psychological consequences including self-imposed restricted mobility, fall phobia and fractures. In evaluating the Warrington Falls Management and Prevention Service, the report focuses on changes in functional performance and mobility levels among clients as a result of taking part in an exercise programme, clients' awareness of the multi-factorial risks associated with falls and the extent to which social isolation of the elderly was addressed by the service.
