Stepping On – for Mandarin speakers

Wednesday mornings for 7 weeks starting on February 14

10am to 12 noon

Upstairs meeting rooms 1 and 2

Stepping On is an exciting, friendly and free community program aimed at preventing falls, encouraging active living and maintaining independence in older people. This program was developed by Lindy Clemson and Megan Swann and is now implemented statewide by NSW Health.

Stepping On is a 7-week program and gives individuals the skills and confidence to undertake their everyday activities and be physically active safely and without the fear of falling. Participants attend weekly two-hour group sessions, during which they learn about strength and balance exercises, safe footwear, medication management, vision, nutrition, moving safely in the community and reducing hazards in the home environment. After completing the program, participants are provided with individualised follow-up and may attend a booster session 2 months later.
