Preventing Falls in Older People Certificate Course

Approximately 1 in 3 older adults living at home will have at least one fall each year. In most cases, falls do not result in serious injury. However, in some cases, they can have devastating effects. For instance, an older adult with osteoporosis may sustain a serious fracture following a fall. This course will teach you why older people often suffer falls and how falls can be prevented in domestic settings. You will learn practical strategies for adapting the environment and working with healthcare professionals, in order to reduce the risk and promote independence.

You will Learn

  • Why older people are at particular risk of falls
  • Environmental factors that make a fall more likely
  • What to do if you fall
  • How to prevent falls in domestic settings by adjusting the environment
  • Getting help with day-to-day tasks and investing in safety aids
  • Why strength and balance training can reduce the risk of falls
  • How to start an effective exercise programme
  • Why regular sight tests can minimise an individual’s risk of falls
  • The link between medication, alcohol and falls

Benefits of taking this Course:

  • If you are an older adult at risk of a fall, this course will help reduce your risk of injury
  • If you live with or care for an older adult, this course will help you safeguard their wellbeing
  • If you work with older adults in a supported or residential living facility, this course will help you contribute to a safer environment
  • If you work in a business that manufactures or sells independent living aids or equipment, this course will give you a valuable insight into the problems faced by older adults at risk of falls

Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 4 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 4 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 4 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can either use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Solo cards or PayPal account to pay for the online course. Our site uses the latest SSL encryption to ensure your safety. All payments are handled securely by PayPal.

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 2.5 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

I personally loved this course because I'm planning my own wedding for 2018 but wanted to know so much more about the topic. I found out so much more than my own personal knowledge and walked away feeling much more confident with small details I would have never even thought about.

I would recommend this course to anyone planning their wedding, or helping a friend plan their wedding or wanting to start their own wedding planning business - each module is so informative that you don't feel that you haven't learned all that you need to know to hit the floor running.

There are 24 modules to complete in this course and each module is so helpful and easy to understand, I was not left with one question due to how full of detail and how well presented the module and course is. Definitely give this course a go to broaden your qualifications and knowledge!

Thank you

Fiona Requadt

A super user-friendly website, with very pertinent course content. Truly enjoyed the study material and the pace at which I could study was really great. I was delighted to receive my Diploma.

I had some technical problems along the way and contacted your student support team a couple of times and found them to be most helpful and the response time/turnaround was so quick.

I have also signed up to do the Events Planning Diploma and will definitely be studying further through your Academy. Once again a huge thank you – your support team are really helpful, friendly and efficient!!

I wanted a qualification to back up the practical experience I had gained in my last job. I found logging in and navigating the site very easy and I really like the flexibility it gave me; being able to study around my usual working day. The topics were well laid out and explained and I understood well through relevant examples.
The test at the end was straightforward however some rewording of the multiple answers would make it more understandable. But otherwise I'm really happy with this course and I have actually learnt more than I expected.
I would not hesitate to use this company again and have in fact bought another course since.

Jenna Woollon

I must honestly say that this course website is a great help for learning new information on previous courses as I did a Premiere Animal Care 1 year course.

Ever since my mum introduced me to this website and got me on the "Dog Grooming Diploma" course through New Skills , we also came across many other great courses and offers and not only did I learn new skills, techniques and information while working on my modules my previous knowledge on dog care expanded tremendously!

I would definitely recommend this website to friends and family to help them gain skills, experience and knowledge on whatever job they are hoping to get with the qualifications from their chosen course.

This course was very easy to follow. Any assistance needed was quickly and professionally sorted.
The modules were great. I am a complete novice in this area of studying but was able to follow each module at my own pace and review.
Thoroughly recommend this to any seeking employment in this area. You get a recognised certificate at the end!
What is also useful is you can revisit modules and refer back to even after the course.
There is an exam at the end which was quite hard but it ensures you have read each module carefully ,so you fully understand.
This course is a must for anyone wanting to undertake Admin or PA work.
I passed and can now apply for this type of work with confidence!!
In one word 'Fantastic!'

Samantha Smith

The course was very methodical and logical, always pointing towards the goal of learning the information to pass the test. It’s also a very nice course. Made the process seem much less daunting than I had made it appear. The logical and organized approach to the material really made this a worthwhile course.

All the course materials are very easy to understand and access, and the fact that you could study at your own pace when you want.

I want to say a big thank you to New Skills Academy for your effort, heart-felt interest and enthusiasm in putting together this course and sharing it with us. Your frequent, intuitive tips were great memory cues for some of the hard to retain information and very helpful especially for someone forgetful like me. Most of all, you took any worry of failure out of the picture and made it easy to visualize completing the test successfully! Thank you again for all your help.

I will definitely recommend this site to anyone looking to take professional courses. Thanks to them, I now have my diploma in Hotel Reception.
