Preventing falls for people over 65
We know falling over isn’t part of the ageing process, and a lot of falls are preventable. We want to help you stay on your feet, enjoying your independence and living the life you want to live. We're committed to reducing falls for older people in their homes and community.

We want you to remain confident, healthy and independent. By improving bone health and strength and balance, you can:

be more stable on your feet
reduce the risk of an injury such as a fracture (broken bone)
more likely to keep your independence
be able to do the things you want to do.
That’s why we've created the Live Stronger for Longer programme to help you stay on your feet for longer. We value and recognise the contribution older people provide to our communities and want to enable this to continue.
