:Age UK Carlisle Together with Cumbria County Council have launched a new fall prevention campaign ‘Get Up and Go’ to promote simple steps that can be taken to avoid falls and raise awareness of the types of exercise people should be taking to prevent a fall.
Sara Bradley is our new Community Falls Prevention worker, who will be visiting community groups and events around Carlisle and Eden to promote falls awareness.
If you would like Sara to visit your community or become a ‘Falls Champion’ please contact her on Carlisle 01228 536673 or e mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prevention Is better than a cure
By carrying talks to groups, we are able to highlight possible hazardous areas within the home and in turn make minor alterations where necessary.
