Help prevent falls with the right footwear
Every year about one-third of people aged over 65 will fall. This rises to almost half of people aged 80 and above. Falls destroy confidence, increase isolation and reduce independence.
Some footwear can increase the risk of slips, trips and falls by making people more prone to poor balance and bad gait, or by making it difficult to judge surface friction and distance from the floor. Examples of unsuitable footwear for the elderly include:
Loose, worn or backless slippers. These are one of the most common causes of older people falling
Slip-on shoes, such as sling backs or flip flops which can slip and trip you up
Shoes with slippery or worn soles, can cause you to slip, especially in wet weather
Shoes with a heel higher than one inch, or with a narrow heel, as these can make your foot unstable and can cause your ankle to turn
