Strength for Life: minimising the risk of falls through heightened awareness

Did you know that 42% of hospitalised injuries in 2020-2021 in Australia were due to falls?

The German speaking Aged Care Services Association Inc. has made it a priority to organise some information sessions for their seniors’ groups about Strength for Life, combining them with excellent presentations about Falls Management. One of these sessions took place recently in Woodcroft Community Centre. The session incorporated information about risk factors, strategies to prevent falls and exercises to improve balance: a perfect complement to the presentation about Strength for Life!

Many thanks to Strength for Life fitness instructor, Marinus Haccou (pictured), for his excellent presentation and to Dimitri Belke for organising the information sessions.

If you belong to a community group that would welcome these presentations, please feel free to contact the Strength for Life team via email:
