A Matter of Balance Classes

NOTE:  This is one class of 8 sessions.  Pre-registration is required.  Follow this link for future start dates of classes.

Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities.  A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.  Trained volunteer coaches teach the program in a variety of community settings.

Participants learn to:

  • View falls and fear of falling as controllable
  • Set realistic goals for increasing activity
  • Change their environment to reduce fall risk factors
  • Promote exercise to increase strength and balance

A Matter of Balance is taught in eight 2-hour sessions.  The York County Area Agency on Aging, in partnership with the Falls Free Coalition of York County, is offering this session of classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, no class on November 12.  The class size is small, with a limit of 12 participants.  There is no charge for the classes.

Please call the YMCA at 717-650-1270 to register or for more information.

 

Location : YMCA East York, 4075 East Market Street, York
