Stepping On: Group A (Thursday April 7 – May 26)

April 7 9:00 am May 26 11:00 am

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 and are concerned about falls, 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 in person for 2 hours every week in small groups for 7 weeks.

At this time we are only offering Stepping On in person but must be prepared to go virtually if needed. You must have reliable internet access, a computer with a web camera, microphone and speaker to allow for videoconferencing. If you are not able to participate by videoconferencing, please sign up for our Stepping On waiting list by emailing [email protected] and we will notify you when in-person sessions resume.
