How Can I Maintain Balance and Strength?

Regular light activity and movement throughout your day, coupled with some specific exercises that help to improve strength and balance can be helpful in preventing falls. Structured exercise programmes that are individualised to the person and progress in challenge over time offer the greatest benefits, but there are lots of things you can do at home to start to improve your strength and balance. There are options for doing exercises in a seated or standing position, and you don’t need any specialist equipment or kit.

We’re delighted to be working with Later Life Training, who are experts in strength and balance, to give you an introduction to these movements.
