Falls Prevention campaign

It may sound obvious, but your slippers could make you fall if they’re trodden down at the back or loose with wear. Make sure they fit you well and have soles that grip rather than slip. If you’re concerned about your balance and worry that you may be at risk of falling, speak to your GP, District Nurse, Adult Social Care or Age UK for help and advice. Visit for advice and safety tips.

For more information:_

During autumn and winter, cold temperatures, lower light conditions, slippery outside surfaces, and the clocks changing are times when there are significant spikes in people falling inside and outside the home, leading to increased pressure on health services. On behalf of the Falls Prevention Task Group, I would be most grateful if you could disseminate the enclosed packs of resources to the people you support.
