Mrs G’s reduced mobility and balance led to her becoming housebound and lacking in confidence. With an increasing frequency of falls within her home, this sounded very familiar to us.
We suggested some simple but effective ideas to improve her home layout to minimise the risk of falling.
Mrs G’s home is now equipped with stair rails and grab rails, a specialised bath seat and a perching stool in the kitchen and she now practises specific exercises daily to improve her muscle strength and balance.
This has done wonders improving Mrs G’s confidence. Feeling safe when moving around her home has restored her independence.
