Small Steps to Health: Falls prevention programme
Our instructors are able to deliver a range of workshops and activities to raise falls awareness and work with you to help reduce the risk of falls.
We are all at risk of trips and falls. It is no longer considered an older person’s circumstance and that is why we accept anyone aged 18+ and all abilities in our classes. It’s never too early to strengthen your leg muscles especially if you lead a predominant sedentary lifestyle whether it be at home or work.
The less mobile we are, the weaker and more painful our muscles and joints become. This has a negative effect on our daily lives. We go out less, sit more for long periods to try to avoid the pain and increase our risk of falling.
Improving your leg strength and balance will give you more confidence to do everyday activities, help reduce painful joints and muscles, allowing you to become more mobile, help you take part in social events and improve your overall health and wellbeing.
