As people grow older frailty is just a part of life that has to be dealt with. This can lead to trips and falls happening to older adults. The HSE has stated that falls in older people can have life-changing consequences, and older people are most likely to suffer serious injuries, disability, psychological consequences and death following a fall. The risk of falling increases with age – one in three older people fall every year and two-thirds of them fall again within six months. As our population ages, the number of falls and injuries in this age group will increase. To combat this issue and prevent it from happening we have put together a guide that gives advice on how to prevent trips and falls and how to reduce risks in the home.
