Balance & Falls Prevention (For Senior & Aging Care)

Learn How You Can Improve Your Balance and Prevent Falls as a Senior With Our Physiotherapy Services

Exercising is hugely important for seniors as it can increase their chances of longevity, have a great impact on their well-being and build strength over time. Unfortunately, as people age, they run the risk of losing their balance and falling, which can have a serious impact on their future.


Luckily, our physiotherapists are here to help with our balance and fall prevention physio programmes for seniors. We can assist you with improving your balance through physiotherapy to avoid any unwanted falls later down the line.


If you think that our elderly balance and fall prevention training can help you, book an appointment with us today, and we can begin our initial assessment to see where we can help you.

Our Balance and Fall Prevention Programme for Seniors Explained

Through our balance and fall prevention exercise sessions for seniors, our goal is to improve our elderly clients’ balance levels to minimise the risk of them falling and improve their overall stability.


It’s no secret that with age, our ability to do things slowly declines, but it doesn’t have to be like that. While it’s impossible to completely cut out the risk of falling when you get older, with the proper balance and strength training with one of our physiotherapists, you can greatly reduce the chance of it happening to you.


Our balance and fall prevention physio programmes for seniors will teach you how to carry out some of the most useful strengthening exercises to help you maintain your balance so you never have to worry about falling. Some of these include:

  • Sit-to-stand exercise
  • Leg bends
  • Heel raises
  • Leg lifts
  • Wall slides

How Our Elderly Fall Prevention Training Works

It has been found that more than 30% of people over 65 years old fall every year. This is one of the main causes of disability later in elderly people. Do you really want to spend the back end of your life in a wheelchair or bedbound? 

Instead of waiting for that fall to happen, let one of our physios help you put the plans in place to prevent it from occurring completely. 

You can arrange a consultation with one of our physios, who can conduct an initial assessment with you. They’ll carry out a full analysis of your overall health for your age and your environment (house or condo, nursing home, etc.) to better understand the risks it poses to you. Some people may have a steep set of stairs in their home or uneven floors that they could fall over; these are all trip hazards that your physio can point out.

Following your initial assessment, your personal physiotherapist will put together a plan to improve your balance through a strengthening exercise plan that will gear you up for any risks that may lie ahead.

Frequently Asked Questions

Physiotherapy is the number one thing to do for fall prevention for seniors because it addresses the key aspects essential for maintaining balance, strength, and mobility. However, there are some additional steps that you can take to further prevent an accident, such as:


  • Have someone hazard-check your environment and remove anything that may cause you to fall.
  • Wear proper shoes wherever you go, whether at home or outdoors.
  • Install handrails throughout your home.
  • Get an emergency alarm fitted in your home connected to your family members so they’ll be contacted if there’s ever an emergency.
  • Visit your GP regularly to let them know how you’re feeling.

Not at all. We work with plenty of elderly clients throughout the General Toronto Area & surrounding areas who have chosen us to improve their balance so they never have a fall (or at least drastically reducing their likelihood). It’s better to seek help from a professional physiotherapist before the damage is already done. Having said that, our service isn’t just limited to elderly people who haven’t fallen; we also work with those who have, too, so they don’t ever have to find themselves in that situation again.


If you’ve had a fall already and spoke to your doctor, who’s advised you to seek help from a professional physiotherapist, Get Right Physio is here to serve you.

Those over the age of 65 are at the most risk of falling victim to a fall, but we always say to our clients that they shouldn’t wait for that time to come. Your health and fitness should be important at all stages of your life, and our physio services can help you stay on top of that.


While this Balance & Falls Prevention Physio package is for elderly people, if you’re a little bit younger and still interested in taking up physio, you can still contact us today. We offer plenty of programmes for different age groups and conditions.

You shouldn’t waste any time seeking help from a physiotherapist if you notice balance issues. Every day you neglect your balance is another chance that you could fall and seriously hurt yourself.

Absolutely. Just because you’ve fallen before doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road for you. Our fall prevention physiotherapy programmes for elderly people are designed to strengthen your lower body muscles, which will provide better support for your balance and improve your overall mobility.

    Thanks you to Get Right Physio and especially Sabrina for getting my 90 year old mother back on her feet after hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with the company’s professional expertise and for sending us the right therapist for my mother. Sabrina was very kind, knowledgeable and understanding. I would not hesitate to use the company again.

    Claudia was highly professional and had a wealth of knowledge to answer all my questions about pelvic floor health and muscle pain post partum. She was friendly and really took the time to teach me the exercises and go at a pace I was comfortable with. Highly recommended!

    Claudia and her team were instrumental in rehabilitating my mom after her stroke. Claudia is a true professional with a wealth of knowledge but she also has a genuine kindness that instantly put my mom at ease. Claudia has a personalized approach, she took the time to understand not just the physical aspects of my mom's condition but also her unique needs and goals. Claudia communicates clearly and prioritized my mom's safety and wellbeing. Her home exercises and practical tips helped to integrate rehabilitation seamlessly into our daily lives. My family and I are grateful for Claudia's hard work with my mom.
