About this resource
Falls Assistant is a falls prevention and self management tool specifically designed and created to help prevent falls, keep people steady on their feet and stay as independent as possible. It enables older people, their carer’s and family members to assess their own falls risk, and then provides tailored advice that will give them a plan to reduce their future risk of falls and fractures.
This resource has been developed by NHS24’s Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare (SCTT) as part of the European SmartCare programme.
SmartCare is a new European project that aims to use digital technology to improve the health, care and wellbeing of older people at risk of a fall across Ayrshire, Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire.
Falls Assistant is one of a suite of resources/tools available via the programme’s falls prevention and self management portal Living it Up.
