Understanding family carers falls concern and their management of older adults falls risks at home webinar

June 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

With Western Australia’s ageing population, family carers are increasingly becoming an essential support in falls prevention and care delivery for older adults living in the community. Carers’ concerns for older adults’ falls risk, can have a severe impact on the psychological well-being and ability of family carers to prevent falls. Falls prevention programs that include family carers contribute to significant improvement in falls risk awareness and knowledge in carers and their care recipients. However, maladaptive caring strategies adopted by carers could lead to dependence and increasing risk of falling among older adults at home.

Join Injury Matters for the ‘Understanding family carers fall concern and their management of older adults fall risks at home webinar’. A presentation will be provided by Marcus Ang, Edith Cowan University who will discuss issues that contribute to concerns of family carers regarding risk of falling and the strategies they use to prevent older adults from falling at home.
