Learn to Reduce Falls

Wednesday, Sept. 2 or Thursday, Sept. 3

Most of us have fallen at some point in our lives. As we age, the likelihood of falling increases. We offer free classes to help you learn to decrease your risk of falls and to increase your balance and mobility.

There’s a Senior Lifestyles & Injury Prevention (SLIP) session where you can learn about the cause of falls, prevention and get a free fall-risk assessment by a physical therapist. A more in-depth class, Matter of Balance (MOB), is held once a week for eight weeks. You’ll learn to address the fear of falling and exercises to help with balance.

Find out how you can register today.
