Over 1 in 3 adults aged over 65 have falls each year in the UK. To some people, this is a one off occurrence. However, many fall regularly due to their illness or disability. Yorkshire Occupational Therapy use a variety of methods to reduce and control the risk of falls. We work with individuals on their mobility, balance, and confidence. We also look at ways of modifying and adapting the environment to reduce risks. Specialist equipment can also be provided.
