You can reduce your risk of a trip, stumble or fall by increasing the amount of activity and exercise that you do.  Australia’s Physical Activity & Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines recommend at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days, including balance exercises.  See Tips & Ideas for Older Australians for more information.

The fact sheet Strong and Steady suggests activities to keep you strong and steady to minimize the risk of falls.

Standing Up to Falls is a fact sheet with information planning in case of a fall and how to get up from a fall.

For added information see this brochure and questionnaire on how to stay active and independent.

Council on the Ageing (COTA) have an exercise program ‘Strength for Life’ across South Australia focusing on strength training for over 50s. Visit their website for further information.
