Falls and Wellbeing Service

The Falls and Wellbeing Service is available to people aged 55 and over who are registered with a Knowsley GP.

Based at the Centre for Independent Living, we are a preventative nurse-led service that helps people who are afraid of falling or at risk of falling.

Our highly experienced team is a single point of contact for falls assessments.

We undertake Health and Environmental assessments in your home and help to identify possible causes of trips and falls. Once assessed you may require further referrals to specialist services and/or equipment or home aids and adaptations.

Specialist services and support could include our Postural Stability Exercise Programme, IKAN Chair Based Exercise & Activity Groups, ICES for Community Equipment, Care and Repair for minor adaptations to your home or the Aids and Adaptations Occupational Therapy Team for a mobility or bathing assessment.

As part of our Falls and Wellbeing Service, we also run a 22 week Postural Stability Exercise Programme which helps to improve overall balance impairment and weakness, helping to significantly reduce the risks of falling
