Seniors To Learn “A Matter Of Balance”

The fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. Seniors who develop this fear often limit their activities which can result in severe physical weakness making the risk of falling even greater.
The Crothersville Senior Citizens Center will host an 8-week workshop “A Matter Of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls” on Mondays beginning Feb. 7, at 9:30 a.m. at the Crothersville Senior Center.
A Matter Of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realist goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.
Cost of the program is just $10. A workbook is provided and refreshments will be served.
For more information and to register call Sue Walter, Crothersville Senior Site Director, at 793-2523 to register by Feb, 4. Seating is limited.
