White Rock Senior Center to offer ‘A Matter of Balance’ course

-A A +A

On Monday, the White Rock Senior Center will host a course titled, “A Matter of Balance.” The evidence-based program is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. The class includes eight two-hour sessions, led by master trainers. The team includes Maria Francis, Sharon Tolleson and Judith Rhodes.

The program is designed for adults age 60 and older that may be concerned about falls, have sustained falls in the past, restrict activities because of concerns about falling or for those that just want to improve their flexibility, balance and strength. Memberships for adults 60 and over are free at both the Los Alamos and Retired Senior Organization. LARSO membership includes both the Los Alamos or Betty Ehart Senior Center and the White Rock Senior Center. A suggested donation for the course is optional for LARSO members.

Falls are the leading cause of accidental injury death among adults 65 years of age and older in the United States. The program enables participants to achieve significant goals and gain confidence by learning 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.

The classes at the White Rock Senior Center will be offered on Mondays from May 20-June 17, from 2-4 p.m.
