Falls and the Elderly

In New Zealand, about 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will have a fall every year. Older people are more likely to fall because of weaker legs, poor balance, eyesight problems, nutritional deficiencies, hazards in the environment, or side effects from medications. Falls can cause serious injury in older people, and in some cases can result in death. A focus on falls prevention can improve your safety and confidence (ref MOH 2010).
