Falls Prevention Week

View this email in your browserDear readers,

This week is Falls Prevention Awareness Week. We understand some people are worried about falling or have experienced a fall, so stop doing things they enjoy. We want to support people to keep moving and doing everyday activities, so they maintain health, mobility and confidence to keep doing things on their own.

Alongside our growing number of community exercise classes, for those who are concerned about their balance, we are offering a free online (Zoom) introductory 12-week Stay Strong and Steady exercise and information course. The weekly sessions are a combination of seated and standing exercises, which progress over the 12 weeks.
Do not worry if you are a little apprehensive, our amazing tutor will gently guide you through the weekly classes, in a super-friendly and relaxed environment. We can also provide clear instructions on how to access and use Zoom.

Each week, the one-hour session will incorporate:Strength and resistance exercises, which are beneficial for bone and joint health, and help to make everyday tasks easier.Balance exercises, which will help to reduce your risk of falls and improve posture.General information and discussion on staying strong and steady on your feet.The next course is starting on Wednesday 28 September, 10.00 – 11.00am and takes place online via Zoom.
If you have an email account and a camera on your device, you will be able to participate in the course.  We will also send you a resistance band and a booklet with the exercises.

Best wishes,
Generation Games
