Falls Prevention Week

Falls Prevention Week at Old Raven House Care Home

From the 22nd to 26th April, Old Raven participated in April Falls Week 2019, which is a Hampshire NHS initiative. Staff have been exploring falls, how they are managed and how to prevent them from happening. Each day has been focussed on a different contributing risk factor and to mitigate the risks as much as possible. To finish the week off, a Family Day was held on 27th April, which included a coffee morning, Q & A session, falls workshop, dancing and other exercises, followed by afternoon tea!
