Live the life you want
Helping you keep well and steady on your feet
You may have received a text, email or letter from the Falls Injury Prevention team at ACC with a link to this page.
We’re reaching out to customers like you to help prevent injuries for over 65s.
Research tells us that ageing often increases the risk of someone having a fall – however, many falls are preventable.
We want to give you information and resources on how you can increase your strength and balance at home, online, or by attending a community strength and balance class.
This will help you to keep well, stay steady on your feet, and to live the life you want.
