Event Series Event Series (See All)

July 23 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalization for trauma — as well as trauma-related death — among older adults. If you are 65 or older, have had a fall in the past year, or live alone, this workshop provides information on keeping balance, the causes of falls, and dangers to look out for. Topics covered include:

  • Simple and fun balance and strength training
  • The role that vision plays in keeping your balance
  • How medications can contribute to falls
  • What to look for in safe footwear
  • How to eliminate fall hazards in your home

We meet once a week for 2 hour sessions for 8 weeks starting Tuesday July 9th at 10:00am. We will meet at Avondale East Community Resource Center located at 455 SE Golf Park Blvd in the media room.
