Facing up to Falls

RoSPA, the UK’s leading accident prevention charity, has created the short film, Facing up to Falls, as part of its Safer Homes project. It aims to provide practical steps to avoid falls by highlighting key issues that lead to a tumble.  The film contains advice on preventing a fall and involves real-life experiences

More than 3,500 people in England and Wales die every year as a result of a fall and nearly a third of a million people need hospital treatment. Many older people who suffer from falls never fully recover from either the physical or psychological impact of their injuries.

Over a quarter of falls result in hip fractures and the treatment of these alone is estimated to cost around £2billion. Falls are a significant and growing public health issue in an ageing population.
