ExtraCare releases Well-being Review

ExtraCare has released a Well-being Review of 2011, summarising some of the key points that the Charity has encountered over the last year.

The report focuses on ExtraCare's Fracture-Free project, funded by a grant from the Department of Health, which looks to reduce the impact of fractures for residents by detecting previously undiagnosed osteoporosis.

ExtraCare is using an Osteoporosis Risk Assessment, which looks at key risk factors including age, gender, weight, previous fracture history and smoking. Anyone with a score of 7 or above is considered to be at risk and is advised to visit their GP.
