Many people think falls are a natural part of ageing but this is NOT true. Most falls can be prevented and you have the power to reduce your risk through building up your strength, flexibility and energy levels. You can build all these up gradually, a tailored exercise programme can reduce falls by as much as 54%.
Age UK Gateshead provides services :
- Promoting healthy ageing across the different stages of the life course.
- Evidence based strength and balance programmes and opportunities for those at low to moderate risk of falls.
