The fact sheets cover a wide range of falls prevention topics such as physical activity, home safety, safer shoes and balance.
Fact sheets are also available in many community languages such as Chinese, Korean, Farsi, Italian and more.

Active & Healthy
Staying physically active is the single most important thing we can do to stay fit and independent as we get older. Physical activity is good for our bodies and our minds. It also helps us to remain independent and to get the most out of life.
The NSW Health Active & Healthy website can help older adults identify a list of registered Exercise Programs in their area that have specific exercises to improve balance and strength.
