Cheltenham care home hosts falls prevention event

November 4th 2015

The team at Sandfields care home on St George’s Road is inviting people in Cheltenham and surrounding areas to a free event to find out more about preventing falls among older people on Tuesday 17th November.

From 2pm to 4pm, Harm Gordijn, falls prevention specialist at Falls Management Training, will be discussing tactics for preventing falls as well as providing guidance on how to create safer environments, encourage independence and reduce balance problems. 

After the event, Harm will be on hand to answer any questions and there will also be an opportunity for members of the public to meet the carers at Sandfields and take a tour of the home.  
Deanna Lane, home manager at Sandfields, said: “Here at Sandfields, we seek to provide in-depth advice to people in the local community on topics relating to our work. Falls prevention is very important to the team here, and to the wellbeing of the residents, as accidental falls can occasionally lead to further health issues. It is imperative we create a safe environment for older people in the community and ensure the correct safety procedures are in place to prevent accidents.” 

Sandfields is a state-of-the-art care home which provides a range of services, including residential and specialist dementia care.
