A Matter of Balance

From: Tuesday 15 October 2019 at 12:30pm
To: Tuesday 15 October 2019 at 02:30pm

NOTE:  This is one class of 8 sessions.  Pre-registration is required. 

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.  The class size is small, with a limit of 12 participants.  There is no charge for the classes.

Please call Faye Kinard at 717-771-9610 to register or for more information.

Location : SpiriTrust Lutheran Zimmerman Place, 800 Bollinger Drive, Shrewsbury, PA 17361
