The real facts about falling

Falls are the most common cause of injury in older people

On third of people over the age of 65 years fall each year

Half of all people over 80 years fall each year

10% of community dwelling people aged 75 years and over will have a fracture or require hospitalisation requiring a fall.

Falls by older people are almost always associated with weakened leg muscles and poor balance

A significant proportion of falls can be prevented.
