Sept 2nd-Dec 30thThe main purpose of this class is to learn about fall prevention but it is a little more active than our Keep Your Balance course.

After a long period of “Stay Home”, muscles may have gotten weak, so this course works to re-establish strength

The good news is that falling is not an inevitable part of the aging process. Middle-aged and older adults can reduce their risk of falling by knowing their fall risk factors. In this class you will learn the risk factors of falling so that you will be able to decrease fear of falling and the risk of falling. We focus especially on the topic of the importance of regular exercise, what kind of exercise can improve a person’s balance, and how to start being active if you never have in the past. Anybody will benefit from this class, including family members of seniors.
