The York County Area Agency on Aging will host free classes for people to learn how to manage the risk of falling and increase activity levels.
“A Matter of Balance” is a series of classes will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Wednesdays, Oct. 4 to Nov. 3; no class will be held on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 11.
“A Matter of Balance” is meant for older adults age 60-plus 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.
Internet access is necessary as classes will be held virtually using a computer, laptop, tablet, or iPad with a camera.
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; and exercise to increase strength and balance.
Preregistration is required as class size is limited. For more information or to register for classes, call Faye Kinard at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1044.
