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

Internet access is necessary as classes will be held virtually using a computer, laptop or iPad. They will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, from August 9 to September 8; no class will be held on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 6. Pre-registration is required as class size is limited.

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