April Falls Month commences with April Falls Day on Saturday 1 April

Regular exercise, good footwear and good safety practices reduces your falls risk.

Statistics tell us:

  • 37% of injury related deaths are caused by falls
  • 30% of over 65’s fall each year
  • At least 1 in 3 people over 65 will experience a fall every year

We have an excellent Falls Prevention Program at CAH for people who are at risk of falling, or have fallen at home or in the community. CAH has a comprehensive Falls Prevention Guideline full of information for our patients, Residents and clients.

  • It is important to remember any one of us can fall at any time and we need to keep ourselves safe at home, and at work
  • The theme this year is Better Balance for Fall Prevention
