Build strength, coordination and balance in our personalised falls prevention program

Our falls prevention program is designed to prevent falls and assist with recovery from any fall-related injuries.

Our individually tailored program focuses on building strength, coordination and balance while incorporating safety strategies to promote independence and reduce the risk of falls. During your stay you may attend our falls prevention group, which is designed to improve your knowledge of falls prevention strategies.

Matilda Nepean parkinsons disease rehabilitation

Expert and supportive program for people at falls risk

This program is led by our multidisciplinary team which includes physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, hydrotherapists, occupational therapists and nursing staff. You will also have regular clinical reviews with a rehabilitation specialist.

This program is suitable for individuals:

  • who have had a recent fall-related injury or illness
  • who have had an exacerbation of a condition causing balance problems
  • with persisting or worsening disability and dependency due to comorbidities which require rehabilitation because of balance and safety issues

Falls prevention programs are available as either inpatient programs or day programs.
