Broadlands Park Residents Thrive in Falls Prevention Exercise Class

At Broadlands Park, we believe in empowering our residents to lead vibrant and fulfilling lives, which is why we continuously seek opportunities to enhance their overall well-being. Recently, we had the pleasure of collaborating with Your Health Norfolk, a dedicated team of professionals passionate about promoting healthy living and preventing falls.

Your Health Norfolk offers specialized exercise classes designed to reduce the risk of falls and boost physical activity levels. With a comprehensive program that focuses on different aspects of the body, such as warm-up and mobility, strength, balance, and cool-down, our residents were able to engage in a diverse range of exercises tailored to their unique needs.

The FaME (Falls Management Exercise) component of the program included dynamic endurance exercises, strength training, and balance exercises. Residents were guided through a series of movements and activities that aimed to improve their overall fitness, stability, and flexibility. The Backwards Chaining technique employed in the class allowed individuals to gradually progress in their exercises, ensuring they felt confident and capable at each stage.

To further enhance their well-being, participants were introduced to Adapted Tai-Chi, a gentle and flowing exercise that promotes relaxation, balance, and coordination. The Otago component of the program emphasised warm-up and mobility exercises, strength training, balance exercises, and stretching to improve flexibility.

At Broadlands Park, we believe that healthy living should be accessible to all, and partnering with Your Health Norfolk allows us to provide our residents with top-notch exercise opportunities that address their specific needs. Through this collaboration, our residents not only improve their physical fitness but also foster social connections and participate more actively in our community.

The dedicated team at Your Health Norfolk prioritizes personalization and understands that each person’s health journey is unique. They offer a range of services and interventions tailored to individual requirements, empowering clients to achieve their personal goals and lead healthier lives. With their expertise, knowledge, and commitment to making a positive impact, they play an instrumental role in helping our residents thrive.

We are immensely proud of our Broadlands Park residents who embraced the falls prevention exercise class with enthusiasm and determination. Their commitment to improving their health and well-being is truly inspiring, and we are honoured to be a part of their journey.
