FALL PREVENTION - USE IT OR LOSE IT
FALL PREVENTION - USE IT OR LOSE IT

Fall Prevention for Seniors

Use It or Lose It

with Grace Rowan

 

Here is a sobering statistic: The CDC reports that falls are the leading cause of hospitalization for senior citizens, and half of those falls result in injury, many that are serious. The good news is that falls are preventable, and this program will help participants keep their bodies strong and healthy so they can avoid falling, and those potentially serious injuries.

 

This course incorporates exercise with recommendations for lifestyle changes and appropriate changes at home to reduce risk. Participants will learn balance and strength building exercises, how to improve posture and body alignment, and identify strategies to reduce their risk of falling. You will also get added benefits that this additional activity imparts—a boost in concentration, improved memory and mood, and more confidence in your own physical activity.

 

Your body adapts to inactivity—this course will help you be more active. Use It, Don’t Lose It!
