The BBC (Scotland) highlighted the benefits of exercise and falls prevention interventions as part of their programme on the “Cost of Care”. Most countries are now focusing their attention on longevity and the potential rising costs of care of older people. This programme explores the potential of preventative actions with older people that can help maintain independent living and potentially keep in check the rising costs of care.
Available on BBC i-player.
(It also gives a chance for those of you that wonder what Dawn Skelton looks and sounds like to see her in action promoting falls prevention exercise!)
UNFORTUNATELY BBC i-player has not kept the programme on file so this is no longer available
