Preventing falls

Falls can be common, with 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 falling each year. A fall can lead to injury, loss of confidence and reduced independence.

But falls are not an inevitable part of getting older. There are many things you can do to reduce your risk of falling.

Our Staying Active and On Your Feet booklet is full of ideas and information about ways to reduce your risk of falling. People living in NSW can get a free printed copy posted to them. You can also download a copy.

You can learn more about preventing falls by completing our module on falls prevention.

You can ask your general practitioner (GP) or health professional if you need help with fall prevention.
