As described in our last article physical activity plays a very important role in Fall Prevention but it has often been complicated in the past, for seniors to find the class with the right fit for them to enable them to continue to participate. The purpose of developing the exercise class navigation tool was to make it easier for seniors to access LHIN funded exercise classes across the region. The Champlainhealthline.ca link “Exercise Classes for Seniors” shows the “Which Exercise Class is Best for Me” flowchart and a list of the available classes in the senior’s locality.
The chart was launched nine months ago for Fall prevention month in November 2016 and the time has come to ask users what they think of it, and to understand whether it has achieved its purpose and what improvements can be made.
To do this a questionnaire has been developed and will be visible when seniors, family members, and caregivers as well as referrers use the Champlain Healthline at www.champlainhealthline.ca
We would like to ask you as referrers and health care providers to give us your feedback as well as encouraging your patients and clients to complete the very short survey which can also be found here.
Thank you for your time and your help in making sure that the navigation chart is relevant and useful for seniors and their care providers alike.
