In-Home Strength and Balance
WellSouth can support you with a safe and effective home exercise programme, if getting out and about is difficult. Read the information below to see if you may qualify for this programme.
Review the below questions to check if you are at risk of falling:
Do you need to use your hands to get out of a chair?
Do you worry about falling?
Are there activities you have stopped because you worry you may fall?
Do you need to use a walking aid inside or outside?
Have you slipped, tripped, or fallen in the last 12 months?
If you are over 75 (or over 65 and Māori or Pasifika) and answered YES to any of these questions, you may be eligible for in-home strength and balance support.
Get in touch with us on 0800 477 115 and ask for the Falls and Fracture Prevention team.
