What is a Falls Prevention Mobile Clinic?
A Falls Prevention Mobile clinic is a group of health professionals traveling to a community to carry out specific assessments to determine one’s risk of having a fall, and discuss different actions participants can take to decrease their risk and remain independent.
What will take place at the clinic?
You will have a chance to sit down with health professionals one on one to discuss different aspects of your health and abilities. Through the assessments, your risk of having a fall will be determined and with your input an action plan will be created.
Do I need an appointment to attend the clinic? Yes.
To book your appointment for the Windsor Falls Prevention Mobile Clinic, contact Heather Barrington at 258-2146 ext. 3114.
How long will it take?
You should plan to be at the clinic for about 2 hours.
Who are the health professionals working at the clinic?
Nurses, Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists, Occupational Therapists and Pharmacists from various organizations make up the team for the mobile clinic.
What does the clinic cost?
To attend the clinic costs you nothing. However, the cost of a fall resulting in a hip fracture is between 20,000 to 44,000 dollars and can be a life changing event.
All information will be kept confidential and shared only with the team members providing the clinic. A summary of the data collected will print out in a graph format showing if your risk of a fall is low, medium or high. This, along with your action plan and any recommendations made will only be shared with you and your doctor or health care provider.
Falls hurt everyone and can be a life changing experience!
Sadly, too many people get seriously injured as a result of a fall.
Don’t risk your independence.
