Preventing falls can be critical to your overall health – especially as you age. Falls are the most common accident in people over 65 in the UK and the main cause of disability. They are also the leading cause of death in people over 75. After a hip fracture, 50% of people can no longer live independently. You can help prevent falls with regular exercise; improving strength and balance; reducing home hazards, avoiding alcohol and getting regular eyesight checks and foot care.
