Keeping Mobile and Preventing Falls

How we can help

Falls don’t have to be an inevitable part of ageing, there is a lot you can do to maintain your mobility and independence.

Even if you have not experienced a fall, preventing them is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your independence as you get older.

There’s no question that being active and confident on your feet has a positive impact on overall wellbeing. That’s why our expert team of allied health professionals have developed our ‘Keeping Mobile and Preventing Falls’ service.

What do Keeping Mobile and Preventing Falls services cost?

KinCare’s Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) services are subsidised by the Australian Government. The subsidy programme does not necessarily fund the full cost of the service. So each person may pay a small contribution.

Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will discuss the cost of the service at your initial consultation before services start. Payment can be made by direct debit, EFT, cheque or credit card. Special consideration is available to people experiencing financial difficulty.
