"You’d be forgiven for thinking that falls are a part of ageing - something that ‘just happens’ as you get older. There are lots of simple things that you can do to help you stay steady on your feet." - Age UK
Both Home Instead and Age UK run ongoing campaigns to promote the awareness of methods that can prevent falls. Here's some useful resources that are worth taking a look at regarding Falls:
We wanted to say a huge thank you to you for organising the care so quickly and efficiently. You covered detail and made suggestions we hadn't thought of. Special thanks to (CAREGiver) who we all adored. She was a breath of fresh air everyday when we were all feeling down and tired and certainly bucked Dads spirits up. She used her own initiative to fill the time and managed to complete so many tasks happily. I'm quite sure without (CAREGiver's) help, mum would have been ill again.Ms. S (Client's Daughter)
