Want to improve your movement and balance?
The Next Steps programme offers physiotherapy-led goal-focussed exercises and information that aim to improve mobility, balance and physical confidence. It is geared specifically for those with a one-sided weakness, but who are able to perform sit to stand with or without support and can walk 10 metres with or without a walking aid.
Additionally Next Steps offers information and support with issues such as fatigue, diet, exercise and stress management.
It is an eight-week programme and the sessions are weekly, each lasting approximately two hours. The sessions include tailored exercises followed by speakers, demonstrations and discussion. You will be invited to a pre-course assessment of your particular needs.
Developed with the University of the West of England Faculty of Health and Social Care. Funded by South Gloucestershire Council. From April 2019 we will be able to offer Next Steps to Bristol residents. With thanks to funding from the James Tudor Foundation
