Exercise Classes

Senior Programs

Balance for life.

Fit and Fall Proof™ is a FREE fall prevention exercise program designed to strengthen older adults, so they fall less. Classes are open to individuals 60 years and older or anyone accompanying someone 60 years or older. The program provides seniors with moderate-intensity exercises taught by trained volunteers in a variety of locations throughout the five northern counties. These classes focus on strength, flexibility, mobility and balance and not only provide functional fitness, but offer a social aspect as well.

Fit and Fall Proof™ is changing lives!

Results for attendees who participated in the pre- and post- Timed Up and Go test demonstrate great improvement in mobility after participating for 10 weeks. New participants show the greatest improvement in mobility. Classes are offered in Kootenai, Benewah, Boundary, Shoshone and Bonner Counties.

Personal Health Status Assessment

Every 5 years, Panhandle Health conducts a Community Health assessment (CHA) to help determine the primary health-related goals upon which to increase emphasis for the 5 years going forward; the last one was in 2018.

Since we have spent the past two years dealing with a global COVID19 pandemic, we are interested to know how personal health, diet, and physical activity has been impacted for you. These combined data will be used to seek grant funds to help address at least some of the identified issues now, rather than later.

As members of the “senior class” Thank You, in advance, for making time to complete this assessment. We hope that it will encourage you to be more conscious and conscientious about personal health and well-being.

Remember: Completing this survey is totally voluntary. Your answers are not part of a HIPAA-protected medical record. If contact information is collected, it will be kept confidential.
