Supporting Daily Exercise for Independence
This training video was designed for Home-Health Providers but could also be used by other rehabilitation specialists. The 30 minute video is based on two important evidence-based exercise programs for fall prevention, the Otago Exercise Program for Fall Prevention and the Lifestyle integrated Functional Exercise (LiFE) program. The LiFE program adapts Otago strength and balance exercises for integration into activities of daily living using various triggers in the home. Demonstrations of strength and balance exercises and how they can be integrated into regular activities of daily living are presented.
The STRIDE team encourages home health providers and other rehabilitation specialists to review this video and use the concepts and examples with their patients both in the rehab setting as well as for long term self-management if warranted.
