Spring into Action to Prevent Falls
Spring is here! With the weather warming up and the days getting longer, it’s a great time to head outdoors, get active and take action to prevent falls.
Did you know being active can reduce the risk of falls? In fact, research has shown that doing regular exercise can reduce fall risk in older adults by 23%, with high challenge balance combined with functional strength exercise having the best effect!
Spring to Action is an initiative led by Northern Sydney LHD Health Promotion, supported by the NSW Fall Prevention and Healthy Ageing Network. This September, spring into action and help us reduce fall risk among our older friends, family and community.
