An exercise and fall prevention course for caregivers

Geri-Fit's Online Caregiver Training course is ideal for family caregivers and home health aides that want to learn the evidence-based strength training exercises that can be used to rebuild strength that's naturally lost through the aging process, or from chronic disease, stroke, or other medical conditions. These exercises are specifically designed for the needs of older adults that are age 75 and over, however, any age can benefit by them.

Learning Objectives/Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

• Learn evidence-based exercises and stretches that are appropriate for the older adult population.
• Recognize the physiological changes that occur with aging.
• Identify when to substitute or modify a strength training exercise based on a person's physical limitations or joint replacement.
• Adhere to safety and injury prevention by using recognized industry standards.

During this condensed online course, you'll learn 25 evidence-based strength training exercises and stretches designed to improve function, strength and range of motion. No equipment is needed other than a pair of light dumbbell weights and a stretch band. Sample videos of strength training exercises for the upper and lower body will also be provided as well as one-on-one corrective exercise techniques. As an added bonus, a module for balance training and gait exercises is included as part of the fall prevention training.
