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 on Mondays and Wednesdays, Aug. 9 to Sept. 8.
The free classes, held 10 a.m. to noon, are part of an award-winning series called “A Matter of Balance.”
“A Matter of Balance” is for 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.
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; and exercise to increase strength and balance.
Internet access is necessary; classes will be held virtually using a computer, laptop, or iPad.
No class will be held on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 6.
Preregistration is required as class size is limited. For more information or to register, call Faye Kinard at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1044.
