Falls Prevention Program



Fall Prevention Program 

Individuals with neurological conditions are often at an increased risk of falls. Individuals with other conditions can also be at risk of falling. It is estimated that one third of over 65’s are at risk of falling each year. Falls are a major cause of ill health for older people and account for 62% of all fatal injuries in people aged 65 and above. Many people believe that falls are a normal part of ageing but there are numerous ways in which the risk of falls can be reduced.
