A Matter of Balance classes begin
RiverView Health Rehab Services will be holding “A Matter of Balance’’ classes for anyone who has fallen in the past, has restricted activities because of falling concerns or is worried about falls. The classes will teach skills in improving balance flexibility and strength.
“A Matter of Balance’’ is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels. Eight two-hour sessions will be led by certified coaches each Monday and Wednesday, Oct. 17th through Nov. 9th, from 1 pm – 3 pm in RiverView’s Meeting Room 4. Please use the Rehab Entrance on the south side of the building for easiest access.
During the sessions, participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home and exercise to increase strength and balance. The classes are taught by RiverView Occupational Therapist Madeline Graff and Physical Therapist Assistant LueRae Geihsler.
The class is free, but class size is limited, so early registration is stressed. For more information, or to register, call 281-9463.
