Reduce the Risk of Falls with Aquatics

November 5, 2014 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT


Presented By:  Jackie Halbin, Living Well Manager at Lakeview Village in Lenexa, Kansas

Reduce the Risk of Falls with Aquatics


Falls have a negative impact on a person’s quality of life, as well as being an expensive medical issue. Learn how you can enhance your fall prevention program by using the pool for strengthening and balance training. By adding aquatics options to land-based fall prevention, you appeal to many different levels of clients and can manipulate the aquatics environment to allow individuals to complete tasks at a comfortable level, progress “on the fly” and build self-confidence. Helping people develop lower body strength and agility while improving their balance and awareness of center of gravity enables them to stay independent longer.

  • Why water is the perfect environment for fall prevention training.
  • How to encourage participants to improve by creating personal profiles that show their progress.
  • How aquatic training improves scores on assessments conducted on land.
  • Which techniques create a sense of camaraderie among participants to improve attendance and retention rate.
