|Description and Service Details|
|Description (Service)||As part of Ontario’s commitment to help more seniors stay healthy and active, the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) has chosen the ESC VON to provide group exercise and falls prevention classes.
Beyond the 46 Rest and Retirement homes identified by the Ministry of Health and our ESC LHIN to receive group exercise and falls prevention education, ESC VON will be aiming to expand our service to other locations including open community-based venues later this year.
Besides the prescribed components of Cardiovascular Conditioning, Strength Training, Muscle Endurance, Balance/Power and Stretching/Relaxation there is also an educational component which focuses on the main reasons for falls and appropriate intervention strategies to reduce that risk.
