Do you have concerns about Falling? FREE program to be offered in July

Iron County, Michigan – Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.

A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

UPCAP will be offering an 8 week Matter of Balance class on Tuesdays from 2:30-4:30PM beginning on July 7th, 2015, at the West Iron County District Library. There is no cost to attend. Program includes snacks and program materials. Please call 1-800-338-7227 or dial 2-1-1 to register. For more information, please visit www.upcap.org
