Other information: 
The most common causes of a fall can include environmental hazards such as loose flooring, clutter, weak muscles, poor balance, multiple medications and poor health. While most falls do not result in a serious injury, a fear of falling can reduce confidence and may affect independence. This can reduce social contact and potentially lead to isolation and depression.

There are many practical things you can do to prevent a fall. If you have had a fall or know someone who has, or would just like some practical advise on how to prevent falls, we can help.
