Research has shown that one in three people over 65 will have a fall this year. Even people in good health fall. This can put the over 65’s at risk of injury and so the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), along with Public Health England and Saga, have produced a booklet (called Get up and Go), that gives advice on avoiding falls. It includes simple exercise suggestions, safety tips for your home and what to do if you have fallen.
If you know someone who might benefit from this advice, the booklet can be downloaded from the CSP website.
Log on to csp.org.uk and then put ‘Get up and Go’ in the search box and it will take you to the appropriate web pages.
Thanks for spreading the word!
