A falls prevention programme developed in NSW will be run in Goulburn.
The Southern NSW Health District programme, 'Stepping On'
is considered to be one of the most effective falls prevention initiatives, giving elderly people the confidence to undertake everyday activities safely.
Physiotherapist and programme facilitator, Jane Twohill will conduct sessions in Goulburn from Tuesday the ninth of May from 1.30 to 3.30 pm at the Bourke street Health service in the former Day Care room.
She says many people do not realise how prevalent and detrimental to health, falling down can be.
The group runs for two hours per week for seven weeks and is followed by a refresher session two months later.
