Falls Prevention Advice

Education

 

At SPACE we take Falls Prevention very seriously and are always keen to encourage exercise for all age groups. The above video has been produced by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy to mark Older People’s Day 2017 and it brings to life the strength and balance exercises from the popular Get Up and Go Guide. The animation aims to raise awareness amongst older people of the benefits of exercise and the role of physiotherapy in falls prevention.

Alongside the video above there have been some lovely information produced with further advice on measuring your steadiness and improving your overall fitness in later life. The links to the information is below as well as some pictures of the handouts. A hard copy of the handout is available in reception at SPACE.
