Falls Awareness Week 2015

The effect of falling in later life can have a huge impact on a person, often leading to a loss of confidence, injuries or difficulty looking after yourself.

There are many practical things that can help prevent falls and improve your safety in the home.  If you are concerned and would like advice or help, come and visit the team during the week.  Colleagues from Isle of Wight NHS, Age UK, The British Red Cross, the Independent Living Centre, People Matter, the Fire Service and many more will be happy to help.
