Falls Prevention

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.

The local Steady Steps Programme offers a 24 week programme is tailored to those who have previously fallen or worry about falling and is designed to help improve balance and stability. Delivered by Level 4 specialised Postural Stability Instructors, the class is tailored to each individual's abilities and will progress in difficulty throughout the programme. See below for more information.

Or ask your GP about training programmes in your area.
