BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. - July 22, 2018 - PRLog -- Attention Healthcare Professionals and Caregivers - Sharon Claye, President and Owner of Fall Prevention Training Services, LLC., is bringing an exciting new program to Arkansas designed to help older adults and the homebound to avoid falls and increase confidence and independence. On Friday, August 10 in Bryant, Claye, a certified Master Trainer in this system, will be teaching a course for Physical Therapists, as well as fitness instructors, independent personal trainers, activity directors, and anyone interested in helping older adults to avoid falling by improving balance and strength.

"Every 12 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall," says Claye. "These accidents can be dramatically reduced through learning this set of easy, yet effective, activities. Older adults need no longer live in fear of falling and can lead productive and fulfilling lives."

Developed by Dr. Betty Perkins-Carpenter, Rochester, NY, founder and President of Senior Fitness Inc., 6 Steps to Better Balance™ is a proven program that utilizes repetitive practice of a series of movements and simple activities, such as the "Chorus Line" and "Dancing with a Pillow," to help older adults gain better balance and increase their level of daily physical activity.

It is designed to reduce the probability of falls, the fear of falling and fall-related injuries. It also increases body flexibility, leg strength and overall endurance.

"We have been teaching this program all across the country, but this is our first time teaching in Arkansas!  We are excited to bring this fresh life-saving program to Little Rock," said Claye.

Completion of the eight-hour training also qualifies the student for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for Physical Therapists and several major personal trainer certifications.
