Two upcoming classes
"Stepping On" is a seven week workshop that builds strength, balance and confidence in an effort to reduce the number of falls for a person 60 and older. Among older adults falls are the leading cause of injury, hospital admissions, and death. More than one third of seniors experience a fall each year. Stepping On is an evidence based program that helps seniors become more aware of fall hazards and to learn how to reduce their fall risk.
Two workshops are coming up -- the first will be on Wednesdays starting October 1 and going through November 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Orem Friendship Center (93 North 400 East).
A second will be on Thursdays, October 2 to November 13 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Springville Senior Center (50 East 200 South).
Classes are free, but reservations are required (space and materials are limited). To register, please call 801-851-7095. The program is presented by the Utah County Health Department, and sponsored by Mountainland Aging and Family Services Department.
