A Matter of Balance Classes in Red Lake Falls
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.

Eight two-hour sessions will be led by certified coaches each Tuesday and Thursday, Oct. 27th through Nov. 19th from 10 am – Noon at the Sunset Court Community Room at 300 International Drive, Red Lake Falls.
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 Aandal and Physical Therapist Assistant LueRae Geilhsler.
