Every day many people are admitted to hospital following a fall, and a percentage of those people die from the side effects of the fall. We treat many persons over the age of 50 who have fallen and sustained severe bruising and even fractures.

There are many causes of falls, including changes in your body and health with ageing. External causes of falling can be minimized by changing your environment. Join us for an informative lecture on Preventing Falls, where we teach you the necessary precautions and exercises to improve your balance and strength. The lecture takes place on Tuesday 6th March at 10am and 2pm. Please phone Amy 011-849-7726 to reserve a place. The lecture is free and booklets are on sale for R40.
