Free classes to help reduce fall-related hospital admissions

Cheshire East Council is offering residents free ‘Stand Strong’ classes in a bid to help reduce fall related emergency admissions to hospital.

Data from October 2022 through to September 2023 shows an average of 218 people aged 65 plus across Cheshire East were admitted to hospital following a fall each month.

The One You Cheshire East website contains details of a ‘Stand Strong’ strength and balance training programme – a gentle exercise programme suitable for anyone aged over 65 who is looking to improve strength, balance and mobility.
