26 February - 4 March was Falls Awareness Week in Wales

Age Cymru, Age Connects Wales, and Care & Repair Cymru will be marking 26 February – 4 March as Falls Awareness Week. With more than half of the over 85s and a third of the over 65s in Wales suffering a fall each year, the charities aim to tackle the biggest cause of injury related deaths and hospital admissions for older people.

One way that you can help to prevent falls is to ensure that older people have regular sight tests, and wear glasses with an up to date prescription. For more information on falls prevention, visit the NHS Direct Wales website.
