If you’re concerned about having a fall, you’re not alone. One-third of all people aged 65+ will fall once or more this year. If you’ve experienced a fall, then there’s a good reason to feel anxious about having another. One in ten falls by those 65+ will result in a fracture.
Next week, on Thursday 23 July at 3.00 pm, COTA Victoria is hosting the first of many Seniors Festival events. Our Fabulous Forties Online Dance Party will celebrate the music of the 1940s and feature memorable cinematic moments too.
