Strong On Your Feet
8 week program individually designed to help prevent falls in our older population
Falls are a common problem for older people and are one of the main causes of hospitalisation in the over 65 years age group.
There are many causes of falls.
Risk factors include:
Poor fitting footwear
Chronic health problems
Taking multiple medications
Many people think that falls are a part of getting older, but they are not a normal part of ageing. Many falls can be prevented and ageing does not have to mean a loss of independence.
Falls Prevention classes are an effective way to reduce your falls risk and help you to live a safe and active lifestyle.
