Thermal establishments could therefore play a role in initiating measures to prevent falls among people aged 65 and over screened at risk.The main objective is to evaluate the impact on the incidence of falls at 12 months (M12) to add to the usual care (control group) a program combining, during the treatment, adapted physical activities (APA) and a Therapeutic patient education (FTE) followed by an educational follow-up for 12 months (intervention group) for people aged 65 and over who were at risk of falling on arrival at the Thermal
