The facts are; that falls are a major problem in older adults. The incidence increases with the age in some of the individuals we care for and is higher in women than in men. It is also a fact that, falls are among the main causes of diminished functioning and hospitalisation.

Even without a serious injury, especially in older people, the fear of falling having fallen already, may limit activities. Preventing falls involves simple common sense actions which should be repeated constantly and re-enforced in the individual.
