Our Falls Prevention programme is designed to help reduce the incidence of preventable falls. Our goal is to minimise your risk of falling by learning safety skills and improve your mobility through safe exercise.
Someone from Age UK Oldham will contact you soon to advise you of the time, location and day of your exercise class.
You will attend a free specialist falls prevention exercise class for a maximum of six months with the option of free transport.
The classes are in small groups and delivered by specialist exercise falls prevention instructors. The exercise classes are very gentle and have been specially designed for older adults.
You do not need to wear any special exercise clothing. Please wear loose comfortable clothing.
After completion of the Falls Prevention Programme participants can continue onto our Next Steps programme up to six months where the class is still free, but you will need to arrange your own transport.
30% of people aged over 65 fall at least once a year
50% of people aged 80 and over fall at least once a year
Older people who fall are 2-3 times more likely to fall again
By attending classes you will reduce the risk of having a fall, remain independent, meet new friends and gain confidence
