Last month, the Stay Standing Falls Prevention Program team were named runners up for the “2017 Excellence in Care” Team Awards. The awards night was held by Queensland Leading Age Services Australia (Queensland LASA) at Jupiters’ Casino to celebrate contributions towards the quality of life of older Australians. The Team award was hotly contested and representatives from Jubilee were proud to be recognised as finalists for our Stay Standing program.
In the five years since Jubilee Community Care started delivering the program, Stay Standing has helped more than 100 members of the community learn how to prevent falls. Sandy, Client Support Coordinator, Minky and Rossana (both Support Workers) are the team at the heart of this program. Together, they work tirelessly behind the scenes to organise and run the course. It’s a powerful program, run by wonderful people and after the awards night, we’re glad other people think so too!
The eight-week program is very popular, with graduates saying how much they enjoy the classes and can really see the results. It’s the first accredited falls prevention program in Australia and we work hard to make it accessible to anyone who wants to participate.
