April No Falls

12 April 2019

As part of Logan Hospital’s ‘April No Falls’ campaign, the Logan Beaudesert Falls, Injury and Prevention Sub-Committee is hosting the Logan City Council - Live Well Logan program ‘Move More’ exercise class.

CNC Lorraine Treanor said an accredited sports physiologist ran the ‘Move More’ Program which aimed to promote keeping active through gentle balance and strengthening exercises in older adults and raising awareness of community activities available in the Logan area.

"If we can encourage our older residents in Logan to keep active, we can decrease the occurrence of falls related hospital presentations to the Emergency Department and the decline in the function and quality of life due to the harm they sustain," she said.

Lorraine said the classes would involve patients, visitors and staff already the feedback was all positive.

"The patients chose the disco and rock n roll music they wanted to groove to and are keen to attend again in the coming weeks.
