In Home Balance, Mobility and Fall Prevention Intervention Exercise Programs

The best time to start balance and mobility training is before you begin to experience significant balance problems. Initially, slight changes in balance are barely noticeable, a little stumble or slight unsteadiness is a sign that your body is changing to which you need to pay attention to. Falls are the number one reason older adults lose their independence. One out of every four older adults 65 years and older falls annually, however, falls are not a normal part of aging, and most falls are preventable. There are many reasons why people fall and a comprehensive balance and mobility assessment can identify specific balance challenges, impairments and weakness. This information is crucial in the development of an exercise program that specifically targets your balance challenge. Many of our health and fitness professionals received additional training in balance and mobility certifications and can implement the award-winning balance and mobility program FallProof, as well as the Stay Well At Home Program, and Tai Chi for Better Balance, Stepping On, and Otago.
