Falls injury is the biggest threat to successful independent ageing. The Stay Standing program empowers older adults with strategies for falls risk management in the community. Our core program is based on scientific research and delivered over several sessions. The program may be delivered in-house or collaboratively in line with integrated, person-centred models of care.
CORE BEST PRACTICE TOPICS
Stay Standing program attendance options
Older adults can subscribe to the Stay Standing program online or attend their local group. Falls risk indicator testing is available at live programs via the My Health Indicators App.
