Product Description

Better Balance – reducing the risk of falls

If you work with older people you will inevitably know someone who has had a fall and seen how this often affects their confidence, mobility and ability to get out and about to socialise. Preventing falls is a priority for the NHS as they lead to over 4 million bed days a year at a cost of over £2billion year.

Falls facts:

  • every minute, six people over 65 suffer a fall
  • one in three adults over 65 who live at home will have at least one fall a year
  • falls represent the most frequent and serious type of accident in people aged 65 and over
  • falls are the main cause of disability and the leading cause of death from injury among people aged over 75 in the UK
  • over a million falls could be prevented by using the right exercises

This workshop aims to improve your understanding of:

  • the risk factors for falls
  • the implications of falls on individuals, their families and organisations
  • the importance of bone health in relation to falls risk
  • frailty and the vital role of muscle strengthening and balance training
