Objectives

We run weekly Balanced Lives programmes in various communities to help people stay active, reduce the risk of falls, and also to combat the social isolation that affects so many. Our programme leaders help older people to learn new skills that help improve the quality of their lives.

To help maintain mobility we focus on key areas that have been expertly developed and have been proven to work. We also deliver 'The Senses Framework' that improves care for older people through a relationship-centred approach.Everything we do is evidenced-based. It is the result of research and development from our work with universities and relevant health professionals over the last ten years.

Activities

  • Improve the general health and well-being of older people.
  • Enhance their feelings of well-being, ensuring respect and protection of dignity.
  • Reduce social and health costs, so that funds can be used in other areas of health priority, and
  • Build a sustainable and focused organisation that will help to change the way our society thinks and cares about older people.
