A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls

Free

with Jennifer Fortin

Mar 8, 2017 at 3 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall?

People who experience a fear of falling often limit their physical activities, which can result in loss of strength, reduced muscle tone and balance problems, making the risk of falling greater.

In this class you will set realistic goals for staying active, learn how to stay safe at home, complete exercises to increase strength and balance, and learn how to identify and control your fear of falling.

This class is made possible FREE of charge from Spectrum Generations.
