Matter of Balance Class

Tuesdays starting April 3rd through May 22nd (8 week course)

10:00am – 12:00pm (The Lodge Conference Room)

Many adults experience concerns about falling and as a result may start to restrict their activities. This will actually increase their risk of falling!   Medical providers cannot give us a pill to protect us so it is up to us to identify what we can do to make us safer and more independent! This program focuses on how to lower your fall risk so that you can continue to live a vital and independent life. Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital will be offering this evidenced based fall prevention class: Each session includes discussion and exercise.

YOU WILL LEARN TO:

  • view falls as controllable
  • set goals for increasing activity
  • make changes to reduce fall risks at home
  • exercise to increase strength and balance

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • ANYONE concerned about falls
  • ANYONE interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength
  • ANYONE who has fallen in the past

This is a FREE class. Register at the Lake Barrington Shores Management Office in person or by calling 847-382-1660. Class is limited to 12 participants.
