Our Better Balance classes are designed to help reduce the risk of a fall which could lead to an injury in later life. Many people think there is nothing they can do about getting less mobile in older age but regular gentle exercise can make a big difference.                                                                

What is Better Balance?

Are you concerned about falling, or have you fallen recently? Falls are such common events for older people, often with such severe consequences, but it’s easy to think that it won’t happen to you, or to assume there’s nothing you can do about it. But around 30% of adults over 65 living at home will experience one fall a year; around 2.5 million people in England, rising to 50% of adults over 80 living in their home or residential care.

Our classes are low impact and suitable for all abilities and ages. Most participants notice a rapid improvement in their confidence, balance, and stability, especially if they continue their learning at home.

Classes are held at the following location:

Canford Cliffs Village Hall, 17 Ravine Road, Canford Cliffs, Poole, BH13 7HT
