The Town of East Fremantle and Injury Matters are joining forces for a six month project to help combat falls amongst older adults living in the local government area. Falls are the leading cause of injury in the Town of East Fremantle, accounting for 463 hospitalisations and 7 fatalities between 2012 and 2016.
Injury Matters is excited to launch our latest resource as part of the Stay On Your Feet® Make Your Home Safer campaign – a short animation called Make Your Home Safer with Frank and Tiddles. The engaging animation is aimed at older adults living independently in the community and highlights simple, low cost ways to make your home safer to prevent falls, with a fun and humorous twist through the character Frank and his cat Tiddles.
