Being unsteady on your feet is not a normal part of ageing.
Close your eyes and stand on one foot. It’s hard right?
Now imagine having that same disoriented feeling on two feet, and with your eyes open. Balance is something most of us take for granted. It’s automatically hardwired into our bodies at birth, evolving and adapting as we grow and age. While basic balance is innate, some of us are able to perfect or even master our balance through exercise and practice. We don’t often think about our balance—until of course, we lose it.
The Dizziness & Balance Disorders Centre offer education sessions for aged care staff and aged care clients alike, depending on your needs. Sessions can be as short as 1 hour to gain an understanding of balance, or tailored to your staff training requirements to assist with vestibular rehabilitation.
