Strand House is a small but friendly Residential Home with approximately 6 residents and 15 Carers who provide around the clock care for their Residents. If offers a very homely approach and really makes the residents feel like family . The manager has run the home for the past 30 years.
Strand House approached us to enquire about some training for Falls Prevention . As a Trainer I really enjoy putting together a bespoke course and material for a particular need . Together we discussed the elements of the training and what they were hoping to learn as a result of completing the training.
I made this course very specific to the needs of the home
The modules covered were :
The ageing body
The reasons for falls
Explain the reasons older people may fall
Medication and how it may affect someone’s risk of falls
Risk Groups and Health conditions
Risk Assessments in the Care setting
Managing a fallen person
Documentation – Recording and Reporting of falls
