Tips to prevent falls

Falls are Australia’s largest contributor to hospitalised injuries and a leading cause of injury deaths.

• Repair or remove tripping hazards
• Clean up clutter
• Install grab bars and handrails
• Install bright lights
• Stay physically active
• Have your eyes and hearing tested
• Find out about the side effects of any medicine you take
• Get enough sleep.
• Stand up slowly
• Use an assistive device if you need help feeling steady when you walk.
• Always tell your doctor if you have fallen since your last checkup, even if you aren’t hurt when you fall.
