During the event, there will beadvice and tips from Jane on activities and exercises that improve balance and reduce the risk of falls, to ensure attendees get the most out of the talk. This event also provides members of the local community with the opportunity to meet the friendly team at Foxbridge House and take a closer look at the care home.

Carol McCormack, home manager at Foxbridge House, said: “To prevent health issues that occasionally occur from accidental falls, it is very important to the team and to the wellbeing of the residents that we provide essential information on fall prevention. Here at Foxbridge House, we strive to provide in-depth advice to people in the local community on topics relating to our work, and we are able to do just that with the help of a specially selected expert who will be speaking at this session.

“It is imperative that we create a safe environment for older people in the community, and ensure that family and friends have the correct information to prevent accidents. This event has proved popular in the past, so we are looking forward to welcoming local people to Foxbridge House for what promises to be another interesting and inspiring afternoon of advice and guidance.”
