One in three adults aged over 65 in Salford will experience a fall at least once a year. Falls can be life-changing, costing people their health and independence.
That’s why Salford City Council, NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and City West housing have launched a joint campaign to raise awareness of how to reduce the risks.
If you’re at risk of falling or know someone who might be please check out our tips.
There’s a poster on how to spot simple hazards that might cause a fall and a poster with gentle, daily exercises that will help your strength and balance.
Watch our video for more information.
More information about preventing falls is on the Salford Clinical Commissioning Group website.
