Falls are not accidents, but occur in predictable patterns. If you know why they happen and what to look for, you can stop them from happening. Some people are afraid of falling and limit their activities. When you limit your activities you actually increase your risk of falling. A Matter of Balance can teach you practical ways to reduce fear, increase activity and prevent a fall. This program, sponsored by the Rockland County Department of Health, is for older adults. Classes meet 8 times for 2 hours each. The class starts on October 10th at this location. Advanced registration is required. For more information or to register, call 845-364-2501.
