For patients carers and families

Active & Healthy Website

Staying physically active is the single most important thing we can do to stay fit and independent as we get older. Physical activity is good for our bodies and our minds. It also helps us to remain independent and to get the most out of life.

Research shows that we can substantially reduce our risk of a fall by doing moderate exercise for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week and by incorporating balance and leg strength exercises, such as those you will find on the website, into our daily routine.

This website identifies and lists registered exercise programs, available in your local area, that have specific exercises to improve balance and strength. It also provides useful information on other things you can do to help stay active and on your feet, including information about your health, making your home environment safe, what to do if you do have a fall and home and lifestyle checklists to help reduce your risk of falling.

Staying Active and on Your Feet Booklet

The Staying Active and on Your Feet Booklet is a useful booklet for patients and carers with exercises to do at home, and also includes lifestyle and home safety checklists.
