Your benefits

  • Free advice from specialists in physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
  • Examination of your living situation: tripping hazards are eliminated and the risk of a fall reduced.
  • Personally tailored exercises for more strength and better balance.

Good to know

Falls are to be expected
Falls are the most common cause of accidents. Every third person over the age of 65 experiences a fall at least once a year.
Living independently
Balance exercises increase your steadiness, give you a sense of safety in your everyday life and raise your autonomy.
We'll cover the costs
If you have supplementary medical costs insurance with CSS, fall prevention advice is provided free of charge.
Talk about it
There’s no reason to be ashamed of falling. Speak openly about even apparently harmless falls.

The offer is aimed at seniors who still lead an independent life. The fall prevention session takes place at your home. Let professional physiotherapists and occupational therapists check your home for tripping and slipping hazards. You’ll be given a personalised programme of exercises to improve your balance and strength.
