The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of the Lakeshore and St. John Lutheran Church in Algoma will be offering the seven-week Stepping On falls-prevention workshop each Monday, April 13 – June 1 (no class May 25), 10 am – 12 pm. Attendance at all seven sessions is highly encouraged because each builds on previous skills.
Stepping On is a fun, interactive, evidence-based falls-prevention program aimed at educating participants and building confidence to reduce and/or eliminate falls. It focuses on how strength and balancing exercises, medication management, home and community safety, footwear, vision and mobility are important in preventing falls.
Trained leaders lead the program, and local guest experts also provide information on exercise, vision, safety and medications.A suggested donation of $10 is collected at the first class to help cover the cost of the materials. Advance registration is required; the registration deadline is April 13. To find out more and register, call the Aging & Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore at 877.416.7083.
