WCCOA to hold “Matter of Balance” classes targeted toward preventing falls

Walbridge, OH (March 2, 2018) – The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) will be holding a “Matter of Balance” course at the Northeast Area Senior Center (at 705 N. Main Street, Walbridge) every Wednesday from March 28 to May 2, from 9 to 11 a.m. This course lasts for six (6) weeks, and costs $15 to participate.

 

Are you experiencing a fear of falling? Are you limiting your activities due to this fear? Are you becoming physically weak? If you answered “yes” to any of these three questions, A Matter of Balance is for you! During this class participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risk at home, and exercise to increase strength and balance. Participants will receive a manual for training purposes and a certificate upon completion of the course.

 

This course is sponsored by Aetna Better Health of Ohio.
