Staying steady on your feet
Posted on 24 Jan 2019
Falls are the largest cause of emergency hospital admissions for older people in the UK. It has recently been estimated that approximately 30% of people, over 2.5 million, aged 65 and above and about 50% of people, aged 80 and above living at home, will fall at least once a year.
The campaign, which has been launched by the County Council, aims to help reduce this trend by encouraging more people to become active, improving their strength and balance and therefore reducing the likelihood of having a fall.
