On March the 18th Age UK Barnet and Home Instead Barnet will be presenting a Falls Awareness Event at the Ann Owens Centre in East Barnet. The event will start at 11:00 and run until 12:30. This event is especially directed at people who want to maintain their independence by avoiding falls. Falls are a major cause of hospitalisation amongst older people and many falls can be prevented through simple precautions such as decluttering the home, undertaking balance related exercise, and eating properly.
This event which includes short talks and demonstrations will also introduce people to the wide range of activities that Age UK Barnet undertakes around the borough to encourage people to socialise and have fun being active.
This event is free and everybody is welcome to come along. If you have any questions or would like to tell us that you will attend please phone Dale Bevington on 020 8446 7044. See you there!
