Age UK are holding a Falls Awareness week from the 17th-21st June, 2013 – the theme of which is ‘Healthy Feet’ this year. Events include tips on how to look after your feet, footwear advice and foot exercise advice to help keep feet and ankles strong. It is known that weak foot and ankle muscles contribute to an increase in fall risk, together with poorly fitting footwear/slippers and neglect of general foot health (well cut toenails, removal of painful hard skin or corns).

Good foot health = happy feet!
