On Wednesday 24th January, from 2pm-4pm, the Care UK team at Jubilee House on Pound Lane is welcoming an expert to give advice on preventing falls.
Alison Lambert, a falls prevention nurse from the Royal Surrey County Hospital, will be visiting the home to discuss common causes of slips and trips, as well as providing guidance on how to create safer environments for older people. She will also provide practical tips for maintaining independence and reducing balance problems.
Totka Zhelyazkova, home manager at Jubilee House, said: “Here at Jubilee House, 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, 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 that family and friends have the correct information to prevent accidents. This event has proved popular in the past, so we are looking forward to welcoming local people to Jubilee House for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
