Description

Stepping On is a 7 week class offered in Lawrence by several agencies. Participants will learn balance and strength exercises, as well as develop specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls.                                                                                                                                                       

Stepping On is a research based, scientifically proven program that offers older adults a way of reducing falls by focusing on several key issues, including fall risks, strength and balance exercises, medication review, vision, home safety, safe footwear and what to do and how to cope after a fall.

Participants are expected to attend all seven weekly classes and must be willing to spend part of each class participating in exercises. Appropriate candidates for this class are those over age 60, have had a recent fall or have a fear of falling, able to actively participate in class discussions and able to move independently on their own or with assistance (cane or walker).

This class will be held at the Lawrence Public Library, lower level meeting room. $35. Class size is limited so enroll early.
