Fall prevention – safety in everyday life

Do you often feel unsteady when walking, or do you suffer from dizziness or need optical aids such as glasses or contact lenses? All of these factors contribute to making you feel unsteady on your feet. This increases your risk of falling.

With expert advice you can reduce this risk. The Swiss Rheumatism League (Rheumaliga Schweiz) offers senior citizens living independently personal advice on how to prevent falls. 

Our offer for you: Fall prevention
