The falls prevention mobile clinics are targeted to seniors living in the community. The free clinic involves a personalized assessment session.
In the assessment session, participants have the opportunity to sit one-on-one with health professionals for 25-minute sessions (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 90 minutes.
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.
