Prevention and Management of Falls and frailty in Seniors

This module aims to educate students on frailty and fall prevention in the elderly population. Students would gain theory and practical knowledge on the different types of screening and physical assessments, the health and fitness components, and the importance of balance and mobility in this population.

This module also provides the tools to plan and implement the different types of exercises and/or functional fitness programme safely and effectively in order for the senior or elderly population to live independent lives.  

Prevention and Management of Falls and frailty in Seniors is a module selected from the Specialist Diploma in Healthy Ageing & Community Care for Seniors.  It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma.
