Everyone needs wellness, especially the seasoned members of our society. Generally, there are exercise classes for elders in community centers, retirement communities, yoga studios, gyms, and wellness centers. The aging process is accompanied with changes in muscle mass, blood flow to the brain, lung efficiency, and balance. Another less common concept is that kidney function declines, which handle general dehydration and medication side-effects. All of these make “people of accelerated age” more likely to fall down.
The same reasons why our matured friends fall are the same reasons it takes longer to heal afterward. This means that we should always go the extra mile to prevent it happening in the first place. That’s why I created this general booklet for anyone that teaches a movement-based class for seniors. It includes prevention and also fall recovery. Check it out, and please use this as a guide for preventing falls in classes for seniors!
