Description

This service works with older people who have had a fall or are worried about falling, including people with Parkinson's disease and people who have suffered a stroke.

The team can carry out a home safety check for you. You can get help and advice on ways to prevent falls, including keeping fit and active, diet, footwear and avoiding common hazards.

The team runs local groups which help you to develop strength and balance, and can also provide tailored exercises for you to do at home.

If you would like help, you can contact the team directly. There is also an advice sheet available from the website.

You can get more advice about falls prevention from NHS Choices See external link policy
