ELDERLY people have been given vital advice and help about how to prevent accidental falls.
The major drive to raise awareness about falls featured events across Huddersfield under the campaign Be Strong, Be Steady.
Public health teams worked with different groups to highlight the dangers and offer health tips to avoid taking a tumble.
One event for about 25 people was held at Sundale House day care centre in Bradley.
Julie Tolhurst, Huddersfield Central and South Primary Care Trusts' public health specialist for older people said: "The Bradley event featured a warm-up session and people then did exercises sitting down to develop strength, flexibility and posture which will help to prevent them falling."
Regular health checks and a healthy diet are two other ways people can avoid falls. Making homes safer by fitting handrails, better lighting and non-slip flooring also helps.
