Stay On Your Feet® releases two Move Improve Remove campaigns per year. Each campaign focuses on modifiable risk factors to prevent falls and distributes messages for older adults who live in the community, their family and carers, and the people who work with them.
Improve Your Health campaign
The Improve Your Health campaign is being delivered from 1 March to 31 May 2020. During the Improve Your Health campaign older adults are encouraged to make simple changes, specifically relating to medication management, nutrition, and cognition, to improve health and wellbeing and support healthy ageing, and prevent falls.
The Improve Your Health campaign encourages older adults to;
- Eat regular meals from a variety of food groups to stay strong.
- Have their medicines reviewed every year and ask your GP or Pharmacist to explain the side effects.
- Challenge their mind often by trying something new.
To support Local Governments, health and community workers help older adults stay healthy and independent for longer, the campaign offers information and resources that promote simple and cost effective activities for improving health to prevent falls.
