Falls awareness resources

 

Falls and fractures in people aged 65 and over account for over 4 million hospital bed days each year in England alone.

Falls destroy confidence, increase isolation and reduce independence, with around 1 in 10 older people who fall becoming afraid to leave their homes in case they fall again.

But a tailored exercise programme can reduce falls by as much as 54%.
