Matter of Balance classes targeted toward preventing falls


The Wood County Committee on Aging Inc. will hold a Matter of Balance course at the Wood County Senior Center, 140 S. Grove St., every Tuesday from Aug. 8-Sept. 26 from 10 a.m.-noon.

This eight-week evidence-based course costs $20 and includes a manual for training purposes and a certificate upon completion of the course.

Are you experiencing a fear of falling? Are you limiting your activities due to this fear? Are you becoming physically weak? If you answered “yes” to any of these three questions, A Matter of Balance is for you.

During this class participants will learn 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.

Please contact the Programs Department of WCCOA to register by calling 419-353-5661 or 800-367-4935, or by e-mailing [email protected].
