How safe are you from falling? Falls prevention self-screen checklist
People who are active and look after their health and their home are protecting themselves against the risk of falls. You may not know if you are at risk. Early detection of falls risk is important to avoid injury and keep your independence and mobility.
If you are over 50 please take a couple of minutes to complete the Are you at risk of falling? Self-screen checklist (PDF 119KB). It will give you a guide as to how safe you are from falling, and the areas of your health that might need your attention. If you have osteoporosis, your risk of injury may be higher.
This checklist is not intended to indicate or assign a level of risk of falls to the individual.
