About us

Our program

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.

There is also a paid online version of the program suitable for older adults with internet access.
