In this webinar, hosted by MDFA, we look at what causes a fall, keeping fit if you’re over 50 with a demonstration of some exercises to prevent you from falling. Our expert is Trish Lynch, a physiotherapist, working in rehabilitation and aged care.
For the last six years, Trish has worked as the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Stepping On Falls Prevention Program coordinator. Stepping On is an evidence based falls prevention program for older people living in the community and covers the most common falls risk factors, such as reduced vision. The program includes exercises for leg strength and balance to prevent falls.
