Falls and fractures in older people
Ageing increases your chance of having a fall. As you get older your bones may become more fragile and break easier if you have a fall.
There is a range of support available across Nottinghamshire to help you prevent falls and stay healthy.
If you have had a recent fall or are worried that you may fall, please contact your GP and read the advisory poster [PDF].
Get Up and Go
For advice on avoiding falls and staying healthy download the Get Up and Go booklet [PDF].
Find out more about Get Up & Go at one of our supermarket events that will be staged across Nottinghamshire in September and October 2019.
You can also undertake a range of simple strength and balance exercises. Find out more from this video:
