Managing Chronic Conditions

Did you know that 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 will fall at least once during the next 12 months?

Falls are preventable. Act now!

Did you know a fall only takes a second, but you can lose years that would have been better spent enjoying an appropriately active life?

There are 3 main aims in managing chronic conditions:

  1. To prevent further deterioration, disability, injury or symptoms
  2. To maintain as much function and well being as possible
  3. To restore, if possible, some of the function that may have been lost
