Seniors will be able to add a little balance to their lives and diminish their fear of falling during a four-week course this fall.
Care Connection will offer an eight-session course called “Matter of Balance,” beginning Oct. 1. Classes will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the Care Connection Activity Center in Carrollton and and from 1 to 3 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the senior center. To register, call Shery Fogle at 1-800-748-7826 or Robyn Kistler at 660-388-5431.
The participants will learn:
• To set goals for increasing activity.
• To view falls and the fear of falling as controllable.
• To exercise to create strength and balance.
• To reduce risk factors for falls.
Class participants can expect discussion, problem solving, skill building, assertiveness training, exercises and videos.
