The York County Area Agency on Aging will host free classes from the award-winning “A Matter of Balance” fall-risk series from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, July 9 to Aug. 1, at East York YMCA, 4075 E. Market St., East York.
“A Matter of Balance” is meant for people who have concerns about falling, have fallen in the past, have restricted their activities because of falling concerns, or are interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength.
This program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. Participants will learn to:
• View falls as controllable
• Set goals for increasing activity
• Make changes to reduce fall risks at home
• Exercise to increase strength and balance
Preregistration is required as class size is limited. For more information or to register, call East York YMCA at (717) 650-1270.
