Falls Prevention

Falls Prevention Programmes provide an opportunity for individuals to increase their strength and balance and thus reduce their falls risk.

An Overview of Falls Prevention

Doing regular strength exercises and balance exercises can improve your strength and balance, and reduce your risk of having a fall. It's important that a strength and balance training programme is tailored to the individual and monitored by an appropriately trained professional. Ask your GP about training programmes in your area.
