WHY ARE THESE CLASSES MADE?
These classes were designed by Registered Physiotherapists to help those at increased risk of falls. We work on strength, balance and coordination; all of which decline as we age.
Our intention with these classes is to provide a safe, goal-oriented class to help our community of Paris, Brantford and the surrounding area.
HOW MUCH DO THESE CLASSES COST?
Each class is $7 or $5 with a food donation.
Although these classes may be overseen by a Registered Physiotherapist, we cannot bill these classes to Extended Health Benefits.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT?
Seniors or anyone with previous history of falls, those who are simply trying to minimize the risk of future falls.
WHAT IS THE STRUCTURE OF THIS CLASS?
This Falls Prevention Program is a 10-week program, with a revolving start. You do not need to come on week one - you can start at any time. It just means people in the class will be at different stages.
For those who cannot come every week - you can skip the weeks you need and pick up the following week.
The goal is within 10 session you will have progressed and be able to work independently on falls prevention.
