More and more people in our catchment are gettingolder and having falls. When its clinically appropriate some of these could stay at home. one option could be a co-responder model like the MH one. This could provide a cohort of appropriate care people who may be able to spend some time with these patients and ensure that they are safe in their own home.
If not fesible then maybe a referral service like our support link service where if someone has a fall , with the patients permission we fill out a referral and someone attends the residence the next day to asses the environment and help make suggestions and link them with service providers?
Why the contribution is important
reduce time spent by acute ambulances with these types of cases adn minimalise the preseentations to ED when bot required.
