This program provides clients who are older adults and who are at risk of falls, with increased confidence when walking, reduce their fear of falls and enable them to perform daily living activities more safely. The volunteer’s role is to provide weekly support to the physiotherapist and assist the clients as they perform a range of challenging balance activities, such as exercises performed with eyes closed, using a rocker board and negotiating an obstacle course. It’s a great way of gaining hands on experience in a program that produces great outcomes for clients, in relation to their balance.
