The York County Area Agency on Aging is offering Healthy Steps for Older Adults, an evidence-based program that reduces fall risks among adults age 60 and older by raising awareness about the causes of falls and how to prevent them.
The workshop will be held online on Fridays, March 18 and 25, from 1-3 p.m.
Participants will need an email address and a computer, laptop, iPad, or tablet with a camera. Reliable internet access is necessary.
This free workshop is a two-day program, held for two hours each day, and is designed to be fun, social, and validating.
Participants will learn how to exercise safely at home and ways to improve their health and well-being. Discussions will include home and medication safety, as well as appropriate foot care and footwear.
Participants will take a functional physical assessment to determine their fall-risk score; they will then be referred to appropriate healthcare professionals and community resources as deemed necessary.
Preregistration is required by March 1 by calling Faye Kinard at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1044.
