Specialist community falls service
The specialist community falls service provides high quality falls assessments, interventions and advice to people living in their own homes or care homes. Assessments are timely and comprehensive and are delivered at a location most suited to the patient – for example in their own home rather than in a clinical setting.
The service aims to prevent falls from occurring, where possible, by training staff in the use of tools and assessment to minimise the impact of a fall and to offer advice and appropriate managing techniques for those who have already fallen.
What do we do?
The specialist community falls service offers assessment and therapy in a variety of settings across Barnsley.
