The York County Area Agency on Aging will host free fall-prevention classes from 10 a.m. to noon, Mondays and Wednesdays, Oct. 8-31, at York Township Park Building, 25 Oak St., York Township.
The classes are part of an award-winning series called “A Matter of Balance,” meant for people who have concerns about falling, have fallen in the past, or have restricted their activities because of falling concerns, or who are interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength.
This free 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 Megan Craley at (717) 852-4902, ext. 1017, or (800) 632-9073.
