This article describes the development process of the Safe Mobilisation Program to improve functional mobility and reduce fall risk in cognitively impaired older adults with gait disorders. We drew on a systematic review, informed by a theoretical paper and data collected during a feasibility study. Data collected were field notes of observation and participant feedback. Reflexive thematic analysis was undertaken. Home-based, one-on-one, low-intensity interventions are suitable designs. Key features of the tailored intervention to enhance participation include collaborative goal setting, individualized activities, rapport building, and carer training. Strategies targeting gait and cognitive deficits are integral to achieving optimal outcomes.
