Falls Awareness Week in the Anglia region.

Barrington Lodge Care Home

It is estimated that one third of people aged 65 and above will fall at least once a year. In Hertfordshire alone, this equates to over 1,100 people each week. Many will result in a visit to hospital and 50 will be fatal. Older people can reduce their risk of falls by: • Taking regular exercise to stretch and strengthen toes and ankles. • Wearing well-fitted shoes with high sides, a slip-resistant sole and a heel height lower than one inch. • Speaking to a GP, chiropodist or podiatrist if you have any foot pain as this may affect your balance. During the week, there will be events at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage. Hertfordshire care homes will also be promoting Falls Awareness Week. “Research indicates that up to 30 per cent of falls are preventable and there is already a lot of innovative work being done in Hertfordshire to reduce the risk of falls.

Berkshire Place, St Andrews Way,

Shuropody, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, claims to be the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS.   Comments Foot-care brand Shuropody has raised £3m from the Business Growth Fund, the £2.5bn investment firm owned by Britain’s biggest banks. Founded by entrepreneur Frank Duffy in 2007, the Coventry-based company is aiming to double its annual sales to £30m over the next three years. Mr Duffy said the business, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, is the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS. Following the purchase of 43 Scholl stores from Alliance Boots in July 2008, the company has expanded to 63 stores and concessions. However, Mr Duffy said Shuropody’s latest expansion will be focused on concessions in garden centres and “clinics” located close to out-of-town supermarkets because of high rent and business rates on the high street.

The traditional high street model doesn’t lend itself to what we’re doing,” he said. He added that the company, which treats around 5,000 people each week, is hoping to benefit from providing foot treatments to more patients as the NHS continues to outsource services such as chiropody. “We’re primed for the changes that are going on with the NHS – we’ll be a national provider on a big scale.” Mr Duffy, a former chief executive of the Dr. Martens footwear manufacturer R Griggs, said raising equity finance was “the only available route” to expanding the business in the current climate, as bank debt is either “not available” or too expensive. He said Shuropody’s customers are typically “mature” females, who pay around £30 for a treatment.

Even though she has dementia she loves the staff and feels safe. Even though she may be moving to day care I would not hesitate to recommend this home to http://BayviewWellness.com anyone having to face the difficult decision of where to place a loved one. Should I have to place my mother anywhere permanently in the future I will come back to Barrington.
