Falls Prevention Short Course

Falls Prevention Services with Everyone Health – an invitation to a one session event.

As one of the largest causes of serious injuries among the older population of the UK, helping to prevent falls is one of Everyone Health’s primary concerns. Not only do falls cause a large number of injuries to older people, but they also act as a barrier, stopping people from maintaining their independence.

We know from the experience of some of our members that falls can have uncomfortable medium to long term effects on our health and activity. As we get older our bone structure and density weakens – we don’t ‘bounce back’ like younger people do!

Ben Middleton the Programme Leader (Falls and PAS) is offering a talk about Falls Prevention together with a short practical demonstration of some strength and balance exercises that can help.

Date: To be confirmed late July

Register interest by signing up at the June 12th monthly meeting or contacting David Rose.
