Fall Risk Reduction Programme

Fall Risk Reduction Programme

H4S FP Jln Kukoh - Vision 2017 Apr Website

In 2013, HOPE worldwide (Singapore) and our annual key partner, Johnson & Johnson, collaborated to expand our HOPE for Seniors programme to target a specific need amongst the low-income seniors. We introduced the Fall Risk Reduction amongst two targeted communities of 101 low-income seniors living independently in rental flats in Blks 1 – 13 Jalan Kukoh and Blks 182 Rivervale Crescent. With support from the Health Promotion Board, the first two years of the programme (July 2016 – July 2018), focused on two domains: the elderly’s physical functioning (their balance and gait) and their vision, through 12-week Physical Strengthening programme and vision intervention programmes.
