Stepping On: A Falls Prevention Workshop
February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until March 26, 2020
Stepping On is a seven-week, community-based, small-group program designed to reduce falls and build confidence in older adults. Developed in Australia and tested in a randomized controlled trial, the Stepping On program demonstrated a 31% reduction in falls.
This program is a unique, research based and proven guide to improve overall health, wellbeing and physical strength whilst creating new social connections and companionship.
The program consists of 14 total in-class hours, covering a variety of topics such as: medication management, home safety, vision, improved walking gait, and much more! In addition to these topics, we also instruct daily prescribed exercises completed at home, geared toward improving balance and lower body strengthening.
