|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Tuesday, repeating until July 9, 2019

Do you have concerns about falling? 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.
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
