April Falls Month

This April Falls Day and Month the Northern Sydney Local Health District Health Promotion team encourages people to get physically active, eat healthy, and reconnect with their social networks and community.

NSLHD Falls Prevention Coordinator Margaret Armstrong said it may be an amusing play on words but the annual state-wide April Falls Day (Thursday 1 April) and April Falls Month are serious business.

The purpose of these events is to promote falls prevention for all patients and assist at risk people to stay healthy and fall-free in the community.

Following a year that has encouraged people to physically isolate, this year’s theme is Safe Activity for Everybody.

“This encourages people to get physically active, eat healthy diets, and reconnect with their social networks and community, while highlighting the importance of participating in these activities safely,” Margaret said.

“A key part of our strategy this year is to promote safe and healthy habits. We are encouraging participation in a 3 x 3 healthy ageing, 30 day challenge for staff, patients, carers and those in our community.

"Each day throughout April, participants are encouraged to engage in physical and social activities, and eat three healthy meals.”
