Improving Strength and Balance
Falls can have very serious consequences as we age and in older adults it is usually related to combination of factors.
If you haven’t exercised for a while, don’t worry, exercises are gentle and easy to follow.
Build up slowly and aim to complete two of the above series of exercises twice a week.
