Program reduces fear of fallingMarch 11, 2020
A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls will be offered through Generations at the Ferdinand Branch Library, 112 E. 16th St., beginning Thursday, April 2, and continuing each Thursday through May 21. Classes will be held from 1 to 3 p.m.
A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.
The eight-week program is offered free of charge, but preregistration is required. Each class is limited to 15 participants. A workbook will be provided and refreshments will be served.
This project is supported by the University of Southern Indiana’s Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Proud partners are University of Southern Indiana, Deaconess Clinic, Generations and SWIRCA & More.
