PUBLISHED: 15:00 09 April 2018
Classes to prevent elderly people from suffering trips and falls at home are coming to Burnham-on-Sea.
Age UK Somerset, in partnership with Somerset County Council, will hold Stay Strong, Stay Steady exercise sessions which are designed specifically to prevent falls and improve strength, balance and confidence.
A qualified instructor will be providing hour long classes at Chichester Close, but a start date has yet to be announced.
Those interested should complete a short referral form and classes will run weekly at £4 per session.
A spokesman for Age UK Somerset said: “These sessions are ideal for people who feel unsteady on their feet, or perhaps have a family history of osteoporosis or Parkinson’s disease.”
