Falls Awareness Week 2021

12th July is the start of Falls Awareness Week 2021 in Wales, when Age Cymru, Care & Repair Cymru and Age Connects Wales remind people that falls are not an inevitable part of ageing, and give advice on how they can be avoided.

Looking after your eyes, and making sure that you wear glasses with an up-to-date prescription, can help to reduce the risk of falling, and eye examinations are free if you are aged over 60.

You can find out more about the dangers of falling, and access a range of resources to help you avoid falls (including a 'Take Action Today' checklist) on the Care and Repair Cymru website.
