Falls Prevention is a specific exercise programme designed to improve participants mobility, strength and balance helping to reduce the risk of falls. Participants can take part in the class both seated and standing therefore the class is suitable for a range of ability levels.
82 year old Catherine Murray joined the Falls Prevention Class in Vikingar after a series of mini strokes which affected both her speech and mobility. It was identified that her strength and balance put her at risk of falling. Since attending the class she has noticed improvements in her strength, balance and mobility and in her general wellbeing. She also has greater ability to carry out everyday tasks which has improved her confidence.
