Older people have been encouraged to reduce the amount of clutter in their homes in order to lower the risk of falling.
Vicky Johnston, specialist physiotherapist in falls prevention for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, added that clearing up any spills as and when they happen will also reduce the risk.
Overseas health insurance customers might want to take heed of this advice if they are concerned about fractures that are a common result of falling.
Ms Johnston added: "Avoid clutter and clear up any spills as they happen. Fix down, and remove, any loose rugs, carpets or trailing wires. It is important to have good lighting, especially in hallways and stairways."
International health insurance customers can discuss the matter with their doctors if they are keen to learn more about how to reduce the risk of falling.
