Fall prevention

Falling as we get older is quite common, and although most falls don't cause serious injury they can leave us feeling quite distressed. The good news is there are lots of things you can do to stay steady on your feet.

We support our older people to live active and healthy lives, with improved physical and mental well-being. If you or a loved one has fallen in the past, making changes to reduce the chances of having a fall can also help overcome any fear of falling.
