Falls Prevention

Building activities that maintain strength, balance and flexibility into your lifestyle are said to have implications upon a person's risk of falling. Therefore as we age adopting an active lifestyle that generally maintains these characteristics, whether that be exercise classes like Yoga or hobbies such as gardening, will decrease the risk of a fall. There have also been projects piloted in Norfolk, such as Dance to Health, that look to encourage our older population to be active with a specific targeted approach to reduce the risk of a fall. Use the links below to find out more about the implications of falls, and how physical activity can help people to maintain their independence.
