Do you or a loved one have concerns about falling?

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 people 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
