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

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. Ask your GP about training programmes in your area.

Chair Supported Exercise / Strength and Balance, Falls Prevention, PSI

Ideal for people with reduced balance and mobility who wish to improve health, strength and independence.

Wheelchair users and carers welcome

Sessions begin with a warm up followed by exercises to help improve mobility, flexibility, muscle strengthen and endurance, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, balance and coordination; we end with a cool-down.

No exercises are performed lying on the floor and no participant is required to get onto the floor. However, participants are shown how to get down and up from the floor safely so that they know what to do should the need arise.
