Free workshops on preventing and dealing with falls

ONE of the most common reasons elderly or disabled people get put into a nursing home is due to a fall.

A free workshop on fall prevention and what to do in one will be held in both Hervey Bay and Maryborough on April 18.

It'll be at the Maryborough Neighbourhood Centre 9-11am, and Kirami Residential Aged Care 1.30-3.30pm.
