Move Fitness is pleased to be hosting Stepping On in conjunction with NSW Health. A free program aimed at preventing falls, encouraging active living & maintaining independence in older people.
This program was developed by Lindy Clemson and Megan Swann and is now implemented statewide by NSW Health. It is considered to be one of the most effective falls prevention programs available and has been shown to reduce participants' risk of falling by 31% (Clemson et al 2004).
Stepping On is a 7-week program and gives individuals the skills and confidence to undertake their everyday activities and be physically active safely and without the fear of falling. Participants attend weekly two-hour group sessions, during which they learn about strength and balance exercises, safe footwear, medication management, vision, nutrition, moving safely in the community and reducing hazards in the home environment. After completing the program, participants are provided with individualised follow-up and may attend a booster session 2 months later.
