While minor accidents cause discomfort and inconvenience for a short time, more serious accidents lead to hundreds of thousands of hospital admissions every year. Falls are responsible for four out of five accident-related hospital admissions among people who are aged over 60.

It’s not surprising that people in later life have said that slips, trips and falls at home are the accidents that they’re most worried about, and that they’d like more support and advice to prevent them. We hope the resources in this web hub will help!
