A pre-packaged Train the Trainer and delivery program, empowering older people and their Carers to manage falls risk and maintain independence. Train the community care and aged services workforce to deliver their own Stay Standing Programs!

The Stay Standing Program is a fun, social, interactive group program where older people (or carers) learn effective strategies to reduce falls risk. As Australia's only national quality accredited falls prevention program, it aligns with integrated models of care and inbuilt funding for sustainability. Designed for delivery by community / aged service workers, it enables Home Care and other community based providers to partner with Primary Care, reducing the burden on the hospital system. The program empowers older people with effective strategies to move around safely for maximum quality of life.The aged services workforce can train to deliver the program to groups of their older clients. Training starts online for maximum reach, and is endorsed for continuing professional development points from peak bodies. It is most suitable for Home Care organisations to sponsor their workforce in training for program delivery to groups of older clients. It may also provide a break-through for managing ambulant people with dementia as their carers can learn effective falls risk reduction. It can be applied to the older workforce also as a work based wellness program.
