Healthy Moves for Aging Well

Participant Quotes:

“The exercises were simple, I could do them without complaining.”

Healthy Moves is a 12-week, evidence based in-home exercise program. It provides older adults the opportunity to learn three to five simple exercises that they can do at home to build strength, flexibility and endurance. This program has been proven to increase balance and decrease falls in older adults.

Participants receive an in-home enrollment visit by our Health and Wellness Coordinator, along with a trained volunteer. A baseline test is completed, realistic goals are set and “red flags” are reviewed for safety, per program protocols.

Each participant is then supported by the trained volunteer motivational coach, who checks in by phone weekly to monitor progress and provide encouragement. This is what we call the “Ears and Cheers!” part of the program. Once the 12 weeks are complete, our Health and Wellness Coordinator returns to the home to repeat the baseline test and measure progress. Majority of participants have seen significant improvement and are very happy with the results and often move onto other programs.
