How to prevent a fall

As we get older or after an injury our ability to balance decreases.  This means if we trip on uneven ground or wobble on an ankle we are then more likely to fall over rather than being able to catch our self and correct the wobble.

Things to look for in the home:

1. Have you got any loose rugs you could slip on?

2.Do you make sure you have well fitting slippers for indoors?

3. Don’t walk in a darkened room

4. Keeps floors clean and tidy

 

Below are some exercises to try which will help to improve your balance.  Try to do the exercises everyday – once you are confident at doing the exercises you could try them whilst brushing your teeth as that will act as a good memory aid.
