2022 A Matter of Balance Classes Offered Virtually

The York County Area Agency on Aging will host free classes for people to learn how to manage the risk of falling and increase activity levels. The free classes are part of an award-winning series called “A Matter of Balance.”

A Matter of Balance is meant for older adults age 60+, who have concerns about falling, have fallen in the past, have restricted their activities because of falling concerns or are interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength.

This free program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls.  Participants 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

Participants will need an email address and a computer, laptop, iPad or tablet with a camera.  Reliable internet access is necessary. They will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, from January 19 to February 16.  Pre-registration is required by January 10 as class size is limited.  

For more information or to register for classes, please call Faye Kinard at (717) 771-9610 ext. 1044.
