NSW Government taking care of the elderly

Elderly people are more susceptible to falls for a number of reasons. It is well known that those who experience a fall have poorer health outcomes. The NSW Government has developed a fantastic initiative that is aimed at preventing falls in older Australians living in the community. Stepping On is a seven week program that covers a range of issues for seniors, including falls, exercises and nutrition. As we age, requirements for certain nutrients change, which is covered in Stepping On. Also, see the attached fact sheet which explains the importance of vegetables for seniors and how to include them in the diet.
