Stopfalls Exercise

 

StopFalls aims to highlight the importance of ongoing exercise in all ages. HCPA has been working on delivering direct exercise with service users and delivering the Chair Based Exercise Instructor Qualification for over 5 years now, and has seen some tremendous outcomes.

From May 2019 HCPA will be looking for new locations to host an array of exercise sessions, that we would like ongoing at a location. Groups would have a max of 12 people, with some individuals from the location and some from the community.

We are looking to host groups in the following areas across the county-

  • Chair Based Exercise for residential homes
  • Chair Based Exercise for residential homes for those living with Dementia
  • Intergenerational Chair Based exercise in residential or community setting
  • Strength and mobility exercise in flexi care or retirement housing
  • Exercise for Adult disability services- Type will depend on ability.

If you would like to express an interest in hosting a class please email danielmarsh@hcpa.info with details of the type of session you would like to host, your location and number of individuals that could take part.
