Fall prevention

As we get older, our risk of falling increases. About one in every three people aged 65 and up falls at least once a year. Of the elderly people who fall, 10% suffers of injuries like a broken hip. People who are afraid of falling often become less and less active. This might lead to loneliness.


Falling has multiple causes. Sometimes the person who falls brings about their own fall, sometimes it is their surroundings. Elderly people can suffer from dizziness, reduced eyesight or reduced muscle power, which causes them to not stand as firmly. Urine incontinence may also be a cause of falling; making people want to go to the lavatory quickly. Dangers in someone’s surroundings could include bad lighting, high thresholds, loose rugs or a low sofa. We cannot prevent every fall but it is possible to take measures to heavily decrease the risk of falling.


Zowel vallen als valangst kunnen grote gevolgen hebben voor de manier waarop mensen hun dagelijks leven invullen. Zelfstandig boodschappen doen, tuinieren of andere hobby’s uitvoeren, het zijn allemaal activiteiten die in het gedrang kunnen komen door vallen of valangst. Wij zullen uw valrisico door middel van een persoonlijk gesprek en enkele korte testen in kaart brengen. Vervolgens krijgt u advies over wat u kunt doen om vallen te voorkomen.
