Over the past few decades, an increase in the aging of the population has been observed. Seniors are growing in number and are living longer. However, they are more likely to have limitations, falls and require care.
To meet this need, the Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE) will be offering, as of January 2023, a new telehealth program MARCHE VERS LE FUTUR (MVF). MVF is a unique falls prevention initiative designed for sedentary French-speaking older adults 55 +. Two free groups will be offered – a hybrid group in Cornwall (indoor participants) and a second virtual group (at-home participants).
MVF is a 12-week program that aims to reduce the risk factors responsible for falls in the elderly and to improve access to health services.
