This course is aimed at people with experience of working with older adults and vulnerable populations. They may be working in adult health and social care and focusing on people in their homes.
Although the prescription of medication and client health care is primarily the responsibility of GPs and Consultants, it is now becoming more common practise for teams to work towards the positive benefits of wellbeing using movement and mobility. This is about managing conditions or reducing the effects of client’s conditions.
In order for you to apply activity, movement and mobility, you need to acquire an understanding of the ageing body and the benefits of physical activity and mental wellbeing to improve quality of life.
The Strength and Balance programme is part of a wider project created for iCareiMove for the care industry and is designed to provide you with skills, knowledge, support and mostly confidence, to deliver movement snacks into your care packages.
