The falls prevention mobile clinics are targeted to seniors living in the community. The free clinic involves a personalized assessment session.
The education sessions discuss fall risk factors, the four pillars of fall prevention, home safety equipment and walks participants through fall prevention exercises. In the assessment session, participants sit one-on-one with health professionals (pharmacist, kinesiologist and physiotherapist). At that time, various aspects of the senior's fall risk status will be assessed and interventions will be discussed. A detailed report of all of the recommendations is provided to the participant and sent his or her primary physician and any referring health professional, if applicable. The total time spent at the clinic is approximately two hours.
The clinic travels to many different locations in the Fraser Health region including community centres, seniors housing complexes and other locations where seniors gather. Pre-registration is required.
