Falls Prevention in Home Care Training
This course has been developed to provide learners with an understanding of the serious repercussions of falls, and how to prevent them, in individuals receiving home care.
This course is suitable for staff working in Australian aged home care. It is especially useful for staff who interact directly with aged care consumers, the ‘boots on the ground’ who spend their days providing personal care. These are the staff who can identify changes in the health or mobility of people receiving care and report it so that falls prevention strategies can be put in place.
OHS.com.au is committed to improving the lives of people living in aged care. We have committed to a focus of providing high quality training to one of Australia’s busiest and fastest growing sectors. We know that the aged care sector is heavy on compliance training and staff require ongoing training to stay up-to-date on best practice.
We aim to provide your staff with training that is current, engaging and won’t bore them out of their chairs. We’re working with subject matter experts who are as passionate about providing as high a quality level of care to consumers as we are to providing high quality training. This course is useful as standalone training, or paired with our existing aged care courses to provide a holistic approach to aged care.
