Independent living


With an ageing population it is important that there are services available to support older people in maintaining independent lifestyles.

Falls prevention

Falls are a major health issue, particularly among adults aged 65 or older, or anyone with an impairment which affects balance and stability.

For more information on free falls prevention courses visit the Kent County Council website.

Good Neighbour Project

Good Neighbours run specialist evidence based postural stability falls prevention exercise classes. They have been delivering these classes since 2008 in the Tunbridge Wells area, their aim is to help you stay active and independent.

The Good Neighbour Project also operates a befriending service aimed at supporting older people in their own homes helping them stay independent.
