Care Connection for Aging Services is beginning an eight-class course called “Matter of Balance,” beginning June 4.
The course, which is geared toward people 60 and older, addresses the issue of falling, a problem that results in serious injuries among seniors every year.
The four-week class will be from 1 pm. to 3 pm. Mondays and Wednesdays at the Care Connection Activity Center, CCMH, 200 Lifecare Lane, Carrollton. Participants are asked to pay $25 for materials’ cost. To register, call Care Connection Lifestyles Coach Samantha Schnell at 1-800-748-7826.
The class is meant to reduce the fear of falling and to increase activity among older adults. It was developed after research conducted by Boston University.
The participants will learn:
•To set goals for increasing activity.
• To view falls and the fear of falling as controllable.
• To increase exercises 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.
Nine of 10 participants in the nationally recognized Matter of Balance program said they are more comfortable about talking about the fear of falling, planned to increase exercise, and would recommend the program to others.
Care Connection offers the program as part of its mission to provide resources and services that empower people to create healthy aging experiences.
Some three of 10 seniors fall each year, and about 20 percent of those are injured. Falls are a leading cause of injury and death among older people. Falls often happen at home, and many can be prevented.
