Falls Prevention Month
About Falls Prevention Month

Trips, tumbles, slips and slides are more likely to happen in the Winter months, but they can happen to anyone, anytime.

We'd like to invite you to take part in a program of fun activities in January 2018 where you can join in a conversation about falls, and how to prevent them from happening. Have a laugh, share ideas and perhaps meet some new people.

- What sort of things make it more likely that a fall might happen to you?

- What effect can a fall have on someone's mental and physical wellbeing?

- How can we best support our friends and families who are recovering from or at risk of having a fall?

- And most importantly...how do we prevent falls from happening in the first place?

Pick up our What's on Guide at Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire SCIO, The Market Place, Barrhead Sports Centre, Eastwood Health and Care Centre, Barrhead Health Centre, Tesco, East Renfrewshire Carers' Centre and many more places around East Renfrewshire.
