What is HSEP?
The HSEP is an in-home program, created by a leading Canadian university, that includes 10 simple yet progressive exercises such as walking, reaching with your arms and rising up on your toes. If done regularly, these exercises will help maintain or improve functional mobility, endurance, lower extremity strength and confidence in performing daily activities without falling.
HSEP participants report that they feel better, have an improved outlook on life and can do things around their home more easily. HSEP leaders report increases in their participants’ energy levels and endurance. Imagine the increased independence and joy for today and the future!
