Fantastic results so far!
With 1 out 3 people aged 65 years or over falling each year, HCPA decided to launch the StopFalls Campaign with the aim of reducing falls across Hertfordshire. We are now half-way through our year-long StopFalls Campaign and we are thrilled to find it has proven to be extremely popular. Care organisations across the county have been taking part in the campaign by:
- attending the fully-funded educational days
- becoming Chair Based Exercise tutors
- downloading the StopFalls Resource Packs for information and guidance
- evaluating falls risks using the free-to-download risk assessments
- downloading the StopFalls Mobile App for Android or using the web-application for IOS
We’ve received some great feedback on the workshops and campaign:
“A very interesting course that will be very helpful. Well explained in an understandable way. Refreshed my knowledge but also gained new ideas. Overall excellent training, very interesting and motivating – with good handouts! Thank you!”
“Fantastic course. I want to do more!”
“Wow! At first, I was shocked by the statistics on the frequency and cost of falls, then I was impressed at the wealth and quality of the information and support provided by the team at HCPA! The falls pack is amazing and potentially life-saving!”
“Very stimulating content and very useful for my role as a team leader. Dan was excellent at his delivery of the course. I would highly recommend!” There’s still time to get involved!
