Reducing your risk of slips, trips and falls.
Slip, trips and falls can happen to us all. Many people think, “It won’t happen to me” or that falls are not important. Some think falling is a natural part of ageing and there is nothing you can do. Slips, trips and falls have many causes but there are simple things you can do to help prevent or reduce the likelihood of falls injuries.
The good news is, most falls are preventable. Reducing your falls risk can reduce the likelihood of falls injuries such as broken bones (or worse). Falls are the main reason why older people lose their independence.
The good news is – most falls are preventable.
