Falls

As we age, there is a belief that falls just ‘happen’. But the good news is that many falls and their consequences, such as broken bones, can be prevented.

Our service is for adults with a Somerset GP who have fallen, are at risk of falling, or are frightened of falling. You can refer yourself to our service or a carer, family member of healthcare professional can refer you.

Once referred our nursing team will contact you to understand your needs and direct you to rehabilitation teams and activity classes run  by Age UK Somerset and other health and community services.
