Falls Prevention Classes for Seniors {Thursdays} - Jamaica Plain

  • BCYF Curtis Hall Community Center 20 South Street Jamaica Plain, MA (map)

Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Classes run for 8 weeks and include fun videos, group discussion, a safe surroundings survey, and mild exercise to increase strength and flexibility. It is offered at no charge. Those using a cane or walker will also benefit from this program – it is a great class to help improve your balance and self-confidence.

Location: BCYF Curtis Hall Community Center, 20 South St. in Jamaica Plain

Day and Time:  Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Class Dates: September 26th – November 14th, 2019
