April Falls Day® is an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of falls and to promote the latest best practice fall prevention strategies. The overall campaign goal is to help improve the safety of those at risk of falling.
Following a year that has encouraged people to physically isolate, this year’s theme is Safe Activity For Everybody, which encourages older Australians to get physically active and reconnect with their social networks and community while highlighting the importance of participating in these activities safely.
On the right you can find printable campaign materials, including a 3×3 Healthy Ageing 30 Day Challenge, which is a key part of this year’s strategy to promote safe and healthy habits to staff, caregivers, and older Australians. Each day, for the month of April, participants are encouraged to engage in physical and social activities and include three healthy meals.
Every move counts. Step safely towards better health today.
