A Matter of Balance {Falls Prevention for Seniors} {Wednesdays} W. Roxbury

  • BCYF Ohrenerger Community Center 175 W. Boundary Road West Roxbury, MA 02132 (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 surrounding survey and mild exercise to increase strength and flexibility. It is offered at no charge and anyone from any neighborhood may attend.
Wednesdays March 6th - May 1st from 10-2 p.m. NO CLASS during SCHOOL VACATION APRIL 17th
