What interventions might benefit him at this point?

His GP reviewed his pain medication and started him on vitamin D to support bone health. He was visited by the Occupational Therapist who carried out a falls assessment and supported some adaptations, particularly in the bathroom. He received some advice on exercise and movement from the physiotherapist. His daughter was supported to encourage her father to keep up his social contacts and she began driving him weekly to some of his former friends’ homes to visit.
