Falls Prevention Programme
Our 24-week community based falls prevention referral programme is for older adults at risk of falling. It provides a low-cost follow on service for those exiting the NHS Falls Prevention Service, or a solution for people unsteady on their feet and wishing to prevent a fall. These highly regarded and popular strength and balance classes are designed by experienced health & fitness professionals.
NICE compliant and based on the LLT/ProFane model, AHS Wellbeing are commissioned by Mid Sussex District Council, Adur & Worthing Councils, Chichester Wellbeing and Horsham Wellbeing to deliver the two tier service.
Our highly regarded Wellbalanced programme was featured in The Raising The Bar On Strength & Balance Report produced by The Centre for Better Ageing.
Our Customers tell their stories
The Wellbalanced programme maybe suitable if you:
- Are 65 plus
- Feel unsteady on your feet
- Are finding it harder to rise from a chair or use the stairs to walk up stairs
- Are referred by a GP or Health Professional
- Live in Adur & Worthing, Chichester, Horsham or Mid Sussex.
You can request to join our programme by asking your GP or other Health Professional for a referral to the Wellbalanced programme. Alternatively you can contact your local Wellbeing team.
We are currently experiencing high demand for the programme and there are waiting lists in place for some classes, therefore we are currently not accepting self-referrals in Mid Sussex, Horsham and Chichester. This may change later in the year, so please check back later.
