Falls Management

Falls are the largest cause of emergency hospital admissions for older people

Over 65,000 people aged 60+ in England, Wales and Northern Ireland had a hip fracture in 2016.

Connected Care technology such as telecare and telehealth has a key role to play in helping to reduce the number of falls experienced, and minimising their consequences.


Minimising the Consequences of Falls

Technology can help to keep people safe and independent. As well as helping to manage the risk of falls, it can also alert about events such as fires or floods, aid communication and deliver greater privacy or dignity, and can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives. With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people at risk of falling, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
