Four things YOU can do to prevent falls:
1. Begin a regular exercise program
Exercise is one of the most important ways to lower your chances of falling. It makes you stronger and helps you feel better. Exercises that improve balance and coordination
(like Tai Chi) are the most helpful.
Lack of exercise leads to weakness and increases your chances of falling.
" I thought I was too old to learn Tai Chi. But I enjoy the classes and my balance is much better. I feel stronger when I exercise frequently. And I have a more positive attitude."
