Strength and Balance Programme
Our Walk Your Way to Strength and Balance Programme
Our programme was developed with expert input from Professor Dawn Skelton of Glasgow Caledonian University. It consists of 14 simple exercises that will improve strength and balance and reduce the risk of falls in adults.
Our resources include:
A take home leaflet for adults outlining 10 exercises and handy tips to be more active everyday
A set of laminated cue cards for easy demonstration of the 14 exercises in a group setting. The cards include handy tips to promote an active lifestyle. Four exercises are for frailer older adults
Training for staff working with older adults in health and care settings to learn how to encourage physical activity, reduce sedentary behaviour and build strength and balance exercises into daily care
Training for volunteer Health Walk leaders on why regular walking plus strength and balance exercises provide the key to active older age and how to promote strength and balance activity with walkers.
Signage for health and care settings to promote supported and self-led strength and balance activity.
