Older people living abroad might want to check their expatriate medical insurance to ensure they are covered for physiotherapy.
According to Vicky Johnston, specialist physiotherapist in falls prevention for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, targeted exercise that can be prescribed by therapists is one of the best ways to prevent falls in elderly people.
She noted that it is best to focus on strength training, balance training and flexibility.
However, the situation is different for those who have already suffered a fall.
"If somebody has fallen already, their physiotherapist can prescribe exercises specifically for the person to improve their balance," Ms Johnston explained.
"In general it's keeping as fit as possible, doing up to 30 minutes of physical activity a day."
Those who have not fallen should maintain a focus on keeping up their activity levels, she advised.
