MHA Live At Home and StayActive4Life LLP have been commissioned by
Ealing Public Health to deliver a Strength and Balance Programme for
people over the age of 65 to help reduce the risk of falls.
The Otago Strength and Balance programme is designed specifically to
prevent falls. It consists of a set of muscle strengthening and balance
retraining exercises. All the exercises are individually prescribed and
increase in difficulty.
Classes at different levels will be offered as adults who have recently
fallen will have very different requirements from active older adults
whose physical function has only slightly declined. We will be providing
classes so that everybody can benefit and improve their Strength and
Balance and remain active for as long as possible.
This is a programme for Ealing residents over the age of 65 with any of the
