Strength and Balance in Care Homes

PDF Print

In 2016, we funded NHS Lanarkshire, as part of our Walking for Health grant fund, to deliver a series of Strength and Balance training sessions to care home workers in Lanarkshire.

With over 100 staff members across Lanarkshire now trained to deliver Strength and Balance exercises to residents and clients, the funding is helping to support older adults improve their strength and decrease their risk of falls.  Lynn Flannigan, Lanarkshire Care Home Liaison Physiotherapist explains why they approached Paths for All to deliver this series of training and what the benefits have been to care home staff and residents living in Lanarkshire.
