Living Well for Longer in 51¥

Public Health’s Living Well for Longer project encourages over 50s across 51¥ to improve their strength and balance and keep active and well later in life. Free resistance bands are available to anyone over 50 as part of this initiative. For more information contact us at: livingwell@worcestershire.gov.uk 

Resistance band exercises

Resistance bands are elastic bands that can be used for strength and balance training.

Strength and balance

The natural ageing process means that older people are more likely to have a fall. Strength and balance exercises can help to reduce the risk of falls.
