“Matter of Balance” Classes At Okawville Senior Center

Do you have a concern of falling? You might benefit from attending our “Matter of Balance” classes. This award winning program is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity level of older adults who have concern about falls.

Classes help participants learn to:

• view falls and fear of falling as controllable

• set realistic goals for increasing activity

• change their environment to reduce fall risk factors

• promote exercise to increase strength and balance

This program utilizes volunteer coaches to teach the eight two-hour sessions. We will have an informational meeting at the Okawville Site on July 20 at 11:30am and Nashville on July 21 at 12:45pm.

Classes will begin Tuesday August 2 and end Friday August 26. They will be held at the Okawville Senior Center every Tuesday and Friday from 10am to noon. There will be lunch provided after each class.

If you have any questions, please call Amanda at 243-6605 or Kay at 327-4078.
