Otago

The Otago Exercise Program (OEP) is a series of 17 strength and balance exercises that has been shown to reduce falls between 35 and 40% for frail older adults. This evidence-based program meets for 8 weeks and the participants are encouraged to continue their exercises at home and are supported by monthly phone calls and check ins.

Bingocize®

Bingocize® is a 10-week program that combines a bingo-like game with exercise and health education. The unique addition of bingo addresses many of the barriers to older adults’ participation because the game is fun, familiar, and done in a group setting. The program has been shown to increase older adults’ functional fitness, health knowledge, and social engagement in a variety of settings. The overall goals of the program are to help older adults improve and/or maintain mobility and independence, learn and use health information focused on falls reduction and other health-related behaviors, and socially engage with other older adults.
