Farewell to Falls
This free, home-based fall prevention program sends an occupational therapist to the home to look at the multi-faceted risk factors associated with falls. The therapist assesses strength and balance, and a home safety evaluation with recommendations is completed. Medications are reviewed by a Stanford Health Care pharmacist, home exercises are recommended, and information and education on other risk factors are provided.
This program offers two visits, and follow-ups phone calls are made monthly.After one year, the occupational therapist returns to the home for a third visit and re-evaluation. Self-referrals are welcome.
The Stanford Supportive Care Program provides free classes, workshops, fitness classes, services, and support to all neuroscience patients regardless of where they receive their care.
