Local falls prevention teams join WGN’s lunch group to share information
South Manchester Community Falls Team (Manchester Local Care Organisation) and Buzz Manchester Health & Wellbeing Service came to our Tuesday lunch group at Northenden Social Club this December.
They provided practical advice and information to help our members to better understand:
- all the potential causes of falls
- how to avoid them
- what support services are available locally.
There was even a ‘walking stick audit’ for those who needed it.
Response to the session was very positive and we are planning a follow-up in the New Year.
In this video, Jade from Buzz Manchester Age Friendly Team explains the work that she does across the community as a Neighbourhood Health Worker for Falls Prevention.
