Step It Up

What is ‘Step It Up’ all about?

In Step It Up (developed from Stepping Out into Active Life), we aim to empower the seniors towards a healthy and active lifestyle.

It is also designed to help the seniors prevent falls in the community.

This comprehensive 6-months programme includes:-

  1. Assessment for geriatric problems by CHEP’s medical team
  2. Twice weekly exercises targeted at improving senior’s gait and strength to prevent incidences of fall
  3. Educational health talks on falls prevention, including topics on diet and home safety
  4. Training volunteers in giving assistance and guidance to elders
