Every year in the UK, more than one in three adults aged over 65 falls and injures themselves as a result. Falls have been the most common and serious type of accident experienced by people over 65 for many years, as well as the leading cause of death from injury for people aged over 75.
Falls, and injuries from falls, can affect a person’s confidence, impact on their mental health and quality of life, and prevent a person from living independently. It is crucial that those working in the health and social care sector are aware of how to prevent falls and how to take care of someone who has experienced a fall. This course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of the impact and consequences of a fall, the risks and hazards that could result in a fall, and how to prevent or reduce the risk of falls.
