How exercise can help

Fall prevention

Anyone can have a fall, but older people are more vulnerable and likely to fall, especially if they have a long-term health condition.

Around 1 in 3 adults over 65 who live at home will have at least one fall a year, and about half of these will have more frequent falls.
