Senior's Falls Prevention
Heart Wise Designated
Provided by the Ontario Ministry of Health, the “Falls Prevention Program” is offered twice weekly in Calabogie to those over 65. Sitting on a chair, this class encourages slow, focused movement designed to increase strength for the shoulders, arms, hips, legs and feet.
From bruises to fractured bones, falls by those over the age of 65 due to poor balance, weak muscles or diminished range of motion account for a high percentage of emergency visits and hospital stays. Studies have shown, exercise programs for this age group reduce the incidence of falls.
The Falls Prevention Programs help seniors stay healthy, active, and mobile. If you are 65 years of age or older, you can join Falls Prevention classes offered free of charge.
Thank you for the last 12 weeks of back fitness. It was great. I have really improved since I first started. My breathing is much better, mobility is better, and I can now reach the shower head without standing on my tiptoes. I have also lost 59 lbs. and my husband lost 35 lbs. In addition, his problem shoulder has strengthened, and the range of motion has improved considerably. All in all, it has been a good year for us.

I am a 72-year-old senior who has had two knee replacements and was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. Before attending Susan’s classes, I was extremely stiff and sore every morning just getting out of bed, and even small chores were difficult. After attending exercise classes for only a short time, my flexibility and stamina began to return, and now I find my quality of life has improved tremendously. For those of you men and women who have knee, back, and hip problems, I cannot overemphasize how helpful these exercise classes will be to you. You don’t have to be in pain every day and tearing your stomach up with painkillers. There is a better way, and your quality of life will improve through Susan’s exercise class. Yes, there are days when you will experience some stiffness and fatigue but trust me, these classes will get you through it, and the bad days will become more infrequent. If you are contemplating or have had knee or hip surgery, you need to participate in this program: the better shape you are in, the quicker and easier the rehabilitation. It has and continues to help me so much through my experience.
