Mobility & falls

Find out how we can help

As we age, or after an illness or accident, it is common for mobility to deteriorate leading to falls, loss of confidence and reduced independence. For some, this may be a temporary period on the path to recovery; for others, it may be an ongoing hazard requiring management over the long-term.

Falls and decreased mobility are among the commonest reasons we are engaged to help clients seeking advice and assistance to maintain independence and reduce the risk of injury.

How OT's help

Whether you are enquiring on your own behalf, or for a family member, friend or client, we can help you plan the way forward. The frequency of falls can usually be reduced or even eliminated with even minor changes around the home, whilst mobility can be improved or stabilised with the right professional advice.

Some of the most common reasons we are approached for help with mobility and falls include:

  • A one-off fall, or sequence of falls, occuring in the home or outside
  • A gradual or sudden deterioration in mobility, possibly following a period in hospital
  • Shortness of breath or excessive fatigue after walking short distances

Our sensitive assessment process can allow a specialist occupational therapist to identify any such problems, informing our recommendations and allowing us to plan a pathway to improved mobility and reduced risk of falling.

Our approach

Our aim is to provide flexible and practical solutions to maintaining and improving your mobility around the home and reducing the risk of falls. Our assessment may involve looking at:

  • Mobility in and out of doors
  • Physical stamina and health
  • Your home environment, identifying trip hazards and likely points of injury
  • Daily routines and activities
  • Your goals for the future

Common recommendations

Some practical solutions to help reduce the risk of falls and maintain mobilty include:

  • Our six-week Falls Prevention Programme, all conducted within the home
  • Recommendations for home adaptations to reduce the risk of falls
  • Advice on arranging your home to maximise safety and mobility
  • An individualised, illustrated exercise programme to help increase strength, balance and flexibility
  • Guidance and practical demonstrations to help you cope in the event that a fall does occur
  • Advice to family and carers

Why The OT Practice

We recognise the importance of knowing that you are in safe hands.

  • We can provide ongoing support for as long as you need it
  • Our clear, fixed pricing system will be provided to you in writing for you to consider in your own time
  • We do not add on travel or mileage costs

Next steps

Free consultation

During your initial call to us you can discuss your concerns with one of our client managers, whose clinical knowledge will allow them to understand exactly what your difficulties are and identify the right OT from our team.

Quote

If therapist input is recommended, we will send you a detailed quote via email or in writing explaining what, after a full assessment, we would propose and how much it would cost, as well as rates for further work that might be recommended in the future.

Referral

Once you have had time to consider the options and costs, and if you would like to go ahead, the next step would be to fill in our online referral form. In the meantime, if you have further concerns or questions then our client manager will be happy to discuss them with you.

Assessment

Our therapist will then contact you within 24 hours to arrange a visit at your home. Normally this first visit will comprise a full assessment, after which you will receive a comprehensive written report.

Advice

The report will include a clear record of our findings and recommendations. These may include useful items you can buy or activities you can do independently, but they may also include more complex recommendations such as home adaptations or additional treatment by the occupational therapist. Where additional involvement is required, we will follow up the report with a detailed quotation so that you have all the information needed to make an informed decision.

As Private Occupational Therapists our aim is to provide choices and guidance to help you decide what the best options are for you
