About

In order to take a preventative approach to falls, we wanted to bring together carers and people fearful of falls in a workshop which was co-produced by Roar (Reaching Older Adults in Renfrewshire) and a group of older adults aged between 79 to 92.

Their first-hand tips range from practical ways to stay on your feet and to avoid loneliness and falls. The  presentation is interactive and explores the strategic, financial and social challenges and opportunities around reducing ‘unintentional harm’ in older age and why we need to build a new narrative and vision about active ageing within the context of wider society.

We hope to:

  1. Raise awareness of the issues that impact on people’s ability to stay mobile and connected
  2. Increase understanding of the importance of fall prevention and how it fits into the realm of public health concerns.

It will start with a film screening, then an interactive balance challenge, sit to stand and stop the stoop, getting off the floor with dignity, and then feedback and discussion.

The venue is wheelchair accessible and there will be tea and coffee provided .

When: Tuesday 18 Feb
What time: 1:30-3:30pm
