Steady and Stable: a new Open Age project to help prevent older people falling.

Steady and Stable is a new project offering support to people who are worried about falling, and providing training to staff who want to teach falls prevention.

By using evidence-based exercises to improve balance, Steady and Stable aims to reduce falls and to keep people living independently for longer.

The exercise classes run across Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, and are suitable for anyone who:

  • lacks confidence when walking;
  • has a fear of falling; or
  • has a history of falls.

To find out more, or to refer someone to a Steady and Stable class, please contact Victoria Clout at Open Age on 020 8964 1900 or email vclout@openage.org.uk.

Want to learn the skills to teach falls prevention?

Steady and Stable also offers training for employees to become Falls Champions for their organisation, and to learn the skills they need to teach falls prevention to service-users, and the wider community.  If you are interested in becoming a Falls Champion, please contact Victoria Clout at Open Age on 020 8964 1900 or email vclout@openage.org.uk.

 

The Steady and Stable project is run by local charity Open Age, in partnership with NHS RBKC and NHS Westminster.
