Falls Awareness Week at Amherst Court

02 December 2019 – NCF

Staff at Amherst Court hosted a falls awareness week in November, having invited the local community, other care providers, NHS staff, schools and colleges and experts in Yoga and Tai Chi, to help raise awareness of the importance of movement and exercise for older people and those living with dementia.

The falls week involved residents partaking in activities such as volleyball, football, golf, basketball, Yoga and Tai Chi, to encourage regular movement and fitness with residents. Family members were also asked to take part in activities to support the week, to educate themselves and most importantly support their loved ones to be steadier on their feet.
