APRIL “FALLS” DAY
Monday, April 1st saw Lakeview Private Rehabilitation host the Hills Shire community for an April “Falls” Day.
It may be a fun pun, but it is a serious business, and the afternoon saw a number of attendees enjoy fascinating talks on how to prevent falls and assist everyone in the community to stay ‘fall free’.
The theme was “Frailty – do you know the signs?” and visitors from the community joined our patients and staff for talks on recognition, management and prevention strategies from Dr Manoshi Weerasinghe as well as our own allied health team.
Feedback was excellent with visitors commenting on beneficial it was to hear and understand crucial learnings such as being aware of hazards around the home, the need to take everything easy and take more care, as well as essential items such as DIY safety, removing clutter and the importance of exercise and diet.
