The impact of falls on older people – and the need for prevention

It’s falls awareness week and as part of its campaigning on the issue Age UK has produced the following infographic charting the impact of falls on older people in terms of broken bones. The charity is using this week to highlight the importance of measures to prevent falls – not least to the social care system given the links between falls and demand for care.
