Falls are a major threat to the health and independence of older adults. The good news is falls can be prevented!

FallsFree4Life - Here to help

As one in three people aged 65 and over fall each year, Bracknell Forest Council and Slough Borough Council have commissioned this innovative free service.

FallsFree4Life is aimed at preventing falls entirely in those aged 65 and over living in Bracknell Forest and aged 60 and over in the Slough area. This is achieved by reaching out into the community to identify those that may be at a medium risk of falling often without knowing it.

If you or someone you know would like to receive a free falls risk assessment please use the adjacent booking form or contact us via; email at [email protected], telephone FallsFree4Life Bracknell on - 01344 534019 FallsFree4Life Slough on – 01753 373585 or call us FREE on - 0800 634 9139.

How does it work?

Our team of Wellness Coaches will carry out a detailed assessment of your falls risk while collaborating with you and your family to develop a package of community-based support. Our comprehensive assessment includes:

  • Falls self-confidence test
  • A basic questionnaire assessment
  • Footwear and food care assessment
  • Falls free referral tool
  • Quantitative Timed Up and Go (QTUG) test:
    This will determine your level of risk for falling, and place you within low-medium-and high risk
  • Home risk assessment

Once our Wellness Coaches and Physiotherapists have completed the comprehensive assessment we will explain to you your results and refer you to the most appropriate community support services available if necessary.
