Yvonne shares her story during Falls Awareness Week - @Age_NI #FallsAwareness
Yvonne Rooney is an incredibly active mum, grandparent and community volunteer in her early 60s. She recently had a fall which left her determined to raise awareness of the devastating impact it can have.
Yvonne commented, 'I woke up on the floor in a panic. Earlier that night, I felt dizzy on my way to the bathroom and the next thing I remember was slowly coming to on the floor, not really knowing where I was or how I’d got there. I crawled to the bedroom, found my phone and managed to call my daughter who dropped everything for me.'
