Developed from a pilot scheme, which was nationally recognised in 2008, the service aims to support older people in care homes in a wide range of healthcare aspects.
The Falls Prevention Service is a multidisciplinary specialist service for older people who have fallen or are at risk of falling. Following assessment a care plan is collaboratively agreed with the individual for intervention and management of further falls. The service provides education to public and staff for raising awareness and prevention of falls and fracture in Central Lancashire.
The Central Lancashire Rapid Assessment and Community Rehabilitation Team work within the community to support clients that have been had a deterioration in their abilities to manage at home as a result of a change in their health and wellbeing.
