Fall Prevention is always better than a cure. Falls cost the NHS millions of pounds every year. Before we think about getting somebody and taking them for a walk or getting them from a chair, we have to make sure that we have everything in place for them. First of all we need to make sure they have the correct footwear on. If the person has a hearing aid, this needs to be put on, along with their glasses if they need them. Ensure there are no obstacles on the floor around them.
