Falls prevention

Falling is a common problem, and a fall can have a huge impact on your life, including loss of confidence. There are many reasons why the risk of falling increases with age, but it doesn't have to be an inevitable result of ageing. There are a number of things you can do to reduce your risk of falling again. You can get advice on how to avoid falls from AGE UK and NHS Choices.
