ActivLives Better Balance sessions are aimed at people aged 55 and over who are at risk of falling or who have previously fallen. These sessions are designed to help keep you mobile, active and independent.
Specialised exercises can help make it easier to stay steady on your feet, improve your confidence, reduce your risk of falling and help with everyday activities such as getting out of chair. The sessions incorporate OTAGO falls prevention exercises which can help maintain strength, balance and flexibility.
The session is for 1 hour and is a mixture of seated and standing exercises. We are working in partnership with Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver the Step by Step programme to provide community based falls prevention exercise sessions.
Do get in touch to find out more - we are a friendly and welcoming organisation and look forward to hearing from you.
