A WORKSHOP aimed at people who work with the elderly so they can help prevent falls will take place later this month.

Hampshire County Council is organising the workshop which will take place at Wickham Community Centre in Mill Lane, Wickham, on June 26, from 2pm to 5pm.

The half-day falls prevention workshop is free for voluntary and community organisations – such as community groups, day centres and sheltered housing scheme – and provide guidance on falls prevention, motivation and setting goals with older people and understanding the benefit of exercise for general health.

Each organisation that takes part will receive a training pack which includes exercise leaflets, DVDs of the exercises and a CD of music.
