A specific balance, strength and mobility class for 65+ who are at risk of having or who have had a fall. £5-7 per session all individually tailored programs to improve postural stability. Includes tea and biscuits post exercise!
I’m a member of the Register for Exercise Professionals, Level 4 qualified. I am a qualified Postural Stability Instructor you can validate this by viewing my details on the instructor directory at www.laterlifetraining.co.uk, having undertaken the LLT PSI course in 2018. The course has Endorsed Training Status with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is also endorsed by Age UK (Help The Aged & Age Concern); AGILE; BGS; BHF NCPAH; and NCAA.
As I PSI (FaME) instructor, I am qualified to plan and deliver an exercise programme for frailer older people, which will safely and effectively improve their physical function, and in particular their postural stability, in order to reduce their risk of falls.
I enable a smooth transition between primary care and community leisure settings, supporting physiotherapists and occupational therapists, and providing ongoing assessment of health and functional capacity
Strong and Steady will support older people in the county in accessing existing opportunities for physical activity and providing new tailored exercise and activity where needed. The main aim is to increase physical activity among people aged 65-plus to reduce falls, but through the use of trained instructors and partner organisations the classes are also expected to help to reduce loneliness and to improve mental wellbeing, as well as aiming to:
- Reduce injury due to falls
- Improve balance & strength
- Increase confidence & independence
- Improve ability in everyday tasks
- Improve stamina & energy levels
- Improve cognition
People can be referred to classes by health professionals, including their GPs, physios, specialists or from other existing clinics or classes. People can also refer themselves and will be helped to find the most appropriate class for them.
Sessions will provide information about related topics, such as healthy eating, winter warmth, exercise and how to prevent falls. The programme will be a mix of newly commissioned specialist classes and improving access to existing sessions, with people able to move between the two depending on their circumstances. These sessions will be delivered by appropriately qualified coaches (the Later Life Otago Exercise Leaders Award or equivalent will be the minimum operating requirement). These will be complemented with additional activities such as:
- Chair based exercise and coordination
- EXTEND exercise sessions
- Tai Chi
- ‘Walking for Health’ walks – gentle walks in the local area
- Use of strength and balance exercise DVDs (e.g. Later Life resources)
- Programme of exercises developed to do at home
- Water-based programmes
The sessions will also include:
- Advice and signposting to other services and help e.g. Warm and Well and social
- At appropriate times to include the Warwick Edinburgh and Timed Up and Go
- Time for socialising (e.g. having a cup of tea with other participants)
