Care for a senior

Are you a professional or family caregiver and would like to teach an elder how to prevent falls and improve their cognitive skills?

Helping an elder improve their balance, vision, coordination, and cognitive functions can be easy. The exercises in the Move With Balance book were designed to be flexible and easily adaptable to answer the individual needs of organizations or individuals who works one-on-one with elders, such as family caregivers, caregiver agencies, individual professionals, and physical therapists.

Care for an elder

“When I first met Theresa 3 years ago, she could barely walk and had significant difficulty formulating her thoughts. This past session she had a major breakthrough: she was participating in a brain activity that required her to think, move, and speak simultaneously and had moments of fluidity and effortless flow… a mental sensation that she states she has not experienced since before her accident 4 years ago.

This course has given her so much hope, as well as the necessary tools to continue to move forward.”
