GRx Maternal Term 3, 2018

ACC, Ministry of Health, and Health Quality and Safety Commission NZ have come together to find that one in every three people over the age of 65 years will fall each year, and there is something that can be done to prevent these falls and reduce harm from injury related to falls. Green Prescription has welcomed this research and recognised that we can help support these older people through a Strength and Balance class of our own. The classes will contain strength and balance tests, exercises to increase leg strength and balance, and provide these older people with the confidence and mobility they need to reduce the likelihood of falling. We recognise that several people referred onto our programme would benefit greatly from this class.

Our Palmerston North class will be operating on a Wednesday 9.30am – 10.30am @ the Barber Hall on Waldegrave St
