There is strong interest in Jubilee’s last Stay Standing program of the year so early RSVPs are advised. The program will kick off on Friday, October 26 and run for eight weeks. It will be held at the Indooroopilly Senior Citizens Community Centre, 60 Stamford Rd, Indooroopilly.
The nationally-accredited program empowers people to manage their falls risk and promotes confidence and balance. Jubilee’s Stay Standing co-ordinator Sandy Kelly said the group sessions focused on falls contingency planning, home safety, safe and comfortable footwear as well as the individual assessments in the first and last weeks of the course to allow participants to see how they have improved over time.
Education on topics such as managing chronic pain and continence, safety away from the home, managing medication and sleep, and first aid is provided as well as weekly morning teas.
Book now for the next Stay Standing course at Indooroopilly, from October 26 to December 14. Phone Jubilee as soon as possible on 3871 3220.
