Prevent Falls in the New Year!
Prevent Falls in the New Year! Are you an older adult with a fear of falling? Falls are not a normal part of aging, yet one out of every three adults age 65 and older falls every year and most have significant health and lifestyle consequences as a result. Thanks to grant funding through the Good Shepherd Foundation, a free seven-week workshop for older adults, called Stepping On, is starting in April, 2018. It is led by a health care professional and peer leader and is appropriate for independent community-dwelling older adults with a history of falls, at risk of falls, or who have a fear of falls. It will be offered at Shepherd Oak West Apartments – Community Room on April 2, April 9, April 16, April 23, April 30, May 7 & May 14 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. To register or to receive more information, call Kassara Kneeland at 320-258-9357 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration is required. There will be more information coming in the near future!
