Through community organisations and/or providers of health services the RCC offer support to people who have recently fallen or are at risk of having a fall including:
support following completion of a formal falls prevention programme
encouraging and facilitating a more active and independent lifestyle
engaging with social groups, activities, and local community support networks
An example of our work...
Through ‘Move Up- Move On’ the RCC provides community based support to people that have completed the formal six week Falls Prevention Programme delivered at Rutland Memorial Hospital. The support provided by the team is focused on promoting the continuation of exercises recommended by the Falls Programme, the development of a more active lifestyle, and linking the individual with local support services and networks accessable within their community.
