SAYGO - 'Steady As You Go' falls prevention exercise classes are a great way to help prevent a fall. Falls are the most common injury in an older person. One third of people over 65 fall each year and half of those over 80 fall each year. Falls are almost always associated with weakened leg muscles and poor balance.
You could save yourself from a fall by attending a SAYGO class and improving your strength and balance.
