Balance Exercises

Balance is something we can work on each day. Being physically active, including regular muscle strength and balance exercises, can reduce the risk of falls. Canadian statics indicate that 1 out of 3 older adults, 65 years and older, will have at least one fall.

Staying active can help prevent falls and help you remain independent.

Here are a few easy balance exercises that can be done at home using a sturdy chair, a wall or a kitchen counter for support if needed.
