It is a "real concern" the number of elderly people who are admitted to hospital in England from the result of a fall, Age UK said.
The charity, which launches its Falls Awareness Week today, said around 9,000 older people die every year because they have fallen.
It added that falling over is one of the leading causes of death for over-75s.
