NWTRA Elders in Motion FACILITATOR Training

Functional Fitness for Falls Prevention and Active Living Exercise Program – Facilitator Training.

What: This two-day workshop will provide participants with the skills and knowledge to instruct and teach the Active Living Exercise Program Leader course and the Functional Fitness for Falls Prevention course.

Active Living Exercise Program:

This course is for those who are interested in instructing, encouraging, and monitoring 10 simple and progressive exercises. The exercises were designed to enhance and maintain the functional fitness, mobility, balance, and independence of Elders.  Topics include: frailty, learned helplessness, ageism, and functional mobility. Participants also learn how to develop a community recreation program or work with elders in a home care setting.

Functional Fitness for Falls Prevention:

This workshop is designed to help those who work with older adults improve their programming. Topics covered in the training include: safety, managing risks, gait, fall risk assessments, exercise guidelines, specific exercise suggestions, and program planning. NWT-specific falls information has been added to this course. It also includes an additional half day of practice and mentoring.
