A fall can be a huge setback as we get older and can potentially cause serious injury or even contribute to a death. A fall can often be seen as a sign in the path of decline for an older person but it does not have to be this way.
Preventing falls within the home
With proper guidance and support at home, older people can maintain their independence and prevent falls.
The Bromley Healthcare Falls and Fracture Prevention service have created a number of exercise videos to help with falls prevention. These are based on our community services provided in Bromley, but are still relevant for residents of other borough (the falls provision within your borough/area may be different). You can watch these videos as many times as you like to help improve your technique.
Please ensure that before doing any of the exercises you have watched the introduction and safety videos.
To view our the introduction and safety videos or all the exercise videos, please visit our Falls and Fracture Prevention Exercises page.
