Falls Awareness Week runs every year to promote the services and interventions that can help reduce the risk of a fall, and encourage older people to get active in later life. Events are held around the UK.

The Annual Falls Awareness Week is presented as being an opportunity to encourage people in later life to find out more about falls prevention and take part in local activities to reduce their risk of falling, as having a fall in later life must be a concern as the older we are the more serious the consequences can be, both physically and emotionally. It therefore makes sense to take care of your feet, they support your body. Foot problems or badly fitting or worn shoes and slippers can alter your walking pattern and can upset your balance. So its a good idea to replace worn out slippers as damaged soles or loose slippers can be dangerous. Many accidents happen when people pop outside so if you do this regularly ensure your slipper soles have good grip if at all possible.
