Baile Mhuire Day Care Centre

Falls and fall related injuries are common among older adults in Ireland and
have a devastating effect both for the faller and a significant economic
consequence for health services. There are many associated negative
outcomes such as injury, disability, hospitalisation and reduced quality of life.
It is estimated that 30-40% of persons over the age of 65 will fall at least once
a year.

The Better Bones Better Balance Programme’ in Kerry is an evidence
based strength and balance programme. It is an eight week programme aimed at low risk community dwelling adults to maintain strength and balance and thus reduce the likelihood of a future fall.

Better Balance classes are running in 12 locations around Kerry.
