Falls: a community response

14 Jun 2023
Exchange hall
Collaboration & partnerships , Supporter session

Every year, one in three people over 65 suffer a fall, which can cause severe injury and even death. However, many fallers simply require some help off the floor and someone to provide a little support.

This session addresses the question 'how do systems come together to enable communities to better prevent and respond to those who have fallen at home?'

This session is sponsored by St John Ambulance.
