Standing Up to Falling Down - Tuesday 4th October 2022 from 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Falling is not an inevitable part of ageing and despite this more than one-third of people over the age of 65 fall each year. Adults who fall once unfortunately are 3 times more likely to fall again, being the main cause of hospital admissions for people aged 65 and over.

This free online webinar will provide information on best practice, practical interventions, and fall prevention services available to the residents of Berkshire that are designed to reduce the risk of falls and subsequent hospital admissions.

 

Key Speakers

  •  Karen Grannum, Programme Manager from BHFT NHS Ageing Well Programme.
  • Volunteers from RBFRS Safe and Well Service
  • Steph Irfan, Health Promotion Officer for Steady Steps West Berkshire, Fall Prevention Exercise Programme
  • The Physiotherapy Team, BHFT Falls Team
  • Reading Brough Council TEC Team
