Falls are increasingly common as we get older, sometimes leading to injuries that can cost people their independence. The good news is that many falls can be avoided with the right help.
Why get help to prevent falls
If you come along to our weekly falls prevention classes, our fully-trained instructors will give you the confidence to stay on your feet. They’ll work with you to improve your balance and lower body strength through workouts, including chair-based exercises. Not only will you leave the classes less likely to fall but you’ll also improve your physical and mental wellbeing and even meet new people.
How you can get help to prevent falls
Working in groups of up to 10, you’ll learn how to increase your stability in everyday life. Working mainly on balance, exercises include placing one foot in front of another tight rope style and figure of 8 movements with your feet. You’ll be helped throughout, so there is no need to fear falling over whilst taking part.
