Have concerns about falling come to Matter of Balance workshopThe award-winning program designed to help manage falls and increase activity level will be held in person. A Matter of Balance is for anyone who is concerned about falls or has fallen in the past or has restricted their activities because of falling concerns. The workshop is sponsored by Centralina Area Agency on Aging, Gaston County Adult Services, and N.C. Cooperative Extension.

“We’re excited to offer this workshop in person,” 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 sessions and will be held on Tuesdays, March 5th   through April 23rd from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. All sessions will be held at Confluence South Fork, Cramerton, NC.

There is no cost to participate, but pre-registration is required.

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. To register, contact Rachel Andrea at 704-824-4231 or by emailing her at randrea@cramerton.org by  February 20th.
