The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering “Healthy Steps for Older Adults,” an evidence-based program that reduces fall risks among adults 60 and older, from 1–3 p.m. Mondays, July 19 and 26.
This free online workshop is a two-day program, held for two hours each day, and is designed to be fun, social, and validating for any adult age 60 and older.
Participants will learn how to exercise safely at home and will be provided information on ways to improve their health and well-being. Discussions will include home and medication safety, as well as appropriate foot care and footwear.
A unique part of this program is the involvement of participants in physical skill screenings to determine an individual’s fall risk.
Participants will be referred to appropriate healthcare professionals and community resources, as deemed necessary, to meet one’s needs in preventing falls.
Preregistration is required by calling Faye Kinard at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1044.
