Falls Prevention Programmes provide an opportunity for individuals to increase their strength and balance and thus reduce their falls risk.
An Overview of Falls Prevention
Are you 65? Do you feel a little unsteady on your feet and / or have concerns about balance and mobility? Would you like to improve your balance?
Doing regular strength exercises and balance exercises can improve your strength and balance, and reduce your risk of having a fall. It's important that a strength and balance training programme is tailored to the individual and monitored by an appropriately trained professional.
