A Matter Of Balance: Group B (Tuesdays, April 11th – May 30th)

April 11, 2023 @ 2:00 pm May 30, 2023 @ 4:00 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
