This programme has been developed in response to the CMO Guidelines for Older Adults 2011, which recommends that older adults should aim to be active daily and incorporate activity to improve strength and balance twice each week.
The programme consists of 14 simple exercises that will improve strength and balance and reduce the risk of falls in older adults.
- A set of laminated cue cards for easy demonstration of the 14 exercises in a group setting. The cards include handy tips to promote an active lifestyle. Four exercises are for frailer older adults.
- A take home leaflet for older adults that outlines 10 exercises and handy tips to be more active everyday
Paths for All offer training to walk leaders in Scotland on the use of these cards (not on how to teach the exercises) and you can also buy sets of the cards. To find out more visit Paths for All.
