A Matter of Balance workshop in May 2023

A Matter of Balance is an in-person workshop designed to help manage falls and increase activity. It is for anyone who is concerned about falls or has fallen in the past or has restricted their activities because of falling concerns. Throughout the course, participants will learn how to view falls as controllable, make changes to reduce the risk of fall at home, set goals for increasing activity, and exercises to increase strength and balance.

“We’re excited to offer this workshop in two Stanley locations,” said Linda Minges, program facilitator for N.C. Cooperative Extension. “So many people have been able to improve their balance, flexibility, and strength by the time they finish the course.”

The program consists of eight weekly session. You can choose from one of two locations in Stanley:

  • Tues., May 2 – June 20, 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. All sessions will be held at Christ’s Lutheran Church, 203 S. Main St., Stanley, NC. Facilitators include Pam Bryson and Dana Croston.
  • Wed., May 3 – June 21, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon. All sessions will be held at the First United Methodist Church (Common Ground), 5481 Hickory Grove Rd., Stanley, NC. Facilitators include Linda Minges and Ruth Murphy.

There is no cost to participate, but pre-registration is required. To register, contact Kayla Adams at 704-866-3607 or kayla.adams@gastongov.com by April 21st. The workshop is sponsored by Centralina Area Agency on Aging, Gaston County Adult Services, and N.C. Cooperative Extension.
