The success of our 2016 Appeal allows us to be involved in the ‘Home Assessment and Modification Service’ a pilot scheme offered to at-risk patients registered at one of 5 GP practices in Bristol. These are people who have had a fall; are at risk of, or fear, falling who are then referred to WE C&R by their GP.
Occupational Therapist, Bethany Smith is currently working 2 days a week on this new project.
“I really like doing this work because I see so many people in hospital after a fall – if you can see ways to prevent it that’s so much more beneficial. Getting to them before that point; reducing the risk of something bad happening – that feels really positive.”
