Suncare is delivering this program through a collaboration with occupational therapy students from the University of the Sunshine Coast to help achieve improved health outcomes for our customers.
How does Occupational Therapy help?
An ‘occupation’ may be any task, including those relating to personal hygiene, social skills or housekeeping. Occupational Therapy helps customers to maintain their ability to manage these tasks and other everyday activities. A key element of our program is to implement strategies at home that aim to reduce the risk of falls. The program is part of Suncare’s coordinated approach to meeting our customer’s needs.
Reducing your risk of falls is important for living independently and safely at home, and the Stepping On Program provides participants with proactive skills for preventing falls and promotes active ageing.
