The Aging & Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore and Luxemburg’s St. John Lutheran Church will host Stepping On – a seven-week falls-prevention program – on Thursdays, Aug. 15 through Sept. 26, 10 am – 12 pm. It’s best to attend all sessions because they build on previously acquired skills.
Stepping On is a fun, interactive, evidence-based falls-prevention program that seeks to educate participants and build confidence in order to reduce or eliminate falls. It focuses on how strength and balancing exercises, medication management, home and community safety, footwear, vision and mobility are all important in preventing falls. A $10 suggested donation helps to defray the cost of materials. Call Lisa Van Remortel at 877.416.7083 to register by the Aug. 9 deadline.
