Preventing falls

Effective falls and fracture prevention will make a positive difference to the lives of people living in Northamptonshire. Each year about one-third of all people over age 65 will fall. Many of these falls result in broken bones. The consequences of falls can be significant, particularly for older people.

In Northamptonshire, organisations are working in partnership to prevent falls and enable people to remain independent and well.

Together they have developed a new strategy which identifies the next steps that need to be taken to transform the county's falls prevention and bone health services.

Please watch this short film which explains what is available in Northamptonshire to prevent falls. Gloria, who lives in the county, shares her personal experience and guides you through what you can do to prevent falls.
