Age UK have published a really thorough guide to staying steady on your feet, keeping active and preventing falls which you can download by visiting their webpage age UK falls prevention guide and information.  

This is such an important topic to staying fit and well in older age and at Radfield Home Care we routinely undertake many of the recommendations with our clients such as reviewing and managing medication, checking for environmental hazards in the home, promoting good foot health and so on. We also encourage our clients to be as independent as possible which benefits both mind and body and helps to prevent falls and the potential problems that can subsequently arise.
