 Stay on Your Feet

Stay on your Feet is provided by Injury Matters and funded by the Western Australian Department of Health. Falls can happen to us at any age; however, changes we go through as we get older can put us more at risk of having a fall. The good news is that falls are preventable no matter your age, and Stay On Your Feet has simple tips and tolls you can use to keep your active and on your feet.

Fall Prevention in your home
