Farewell to Falls
This is a free, home-based fall prevention program. An occupational therapist will come to your home to look at risk factors for falls. The therapist also tests your strength and balance. After the visit, you get a home safety evaluation that tells you what you can do to prevent falls.
As part of this program, your medicines are reviewed by a Stanford Health Care pharmacist. You are also given home exercises you can do, and other information on how to prevent falls.
This program offers two visits, and follow-up phone calls each month. After 1 year, the therapist returns to your home for a third visit and re-evaluation. You do not need a referral to take part in this program.
