A fall can be devastating for older people. It can make them fearful of falling again, which stops them doing the things they used to do. This can lead to social isolation and even depression.
Every year one in three people over 65 will fall. For people aged 80 and over, the risk increases to one in two. Not every fall results in an injury, but those that do can cause broken bones, which can be painful and take a long time to heal.
