National Falls Awareness Week

This year National Falls Awareness Day has been extended to a week-long celebration‚ which will take place 21 – 25 June.

The theme for 2010 is the importance of physical activity‚ and we’ll be promoting strength and balance exercises.

Physical activity is one of the best ways of improving our health. Not only can it reduce the risk of getting serious conditions‚ such as heart disease‚ strokes‚ and certain cancers‚ but targeted programmes for strength and balance can dramatically lower the risk of falls.
