Mount Auburn Hospital presents A Matter of Balance Falls Prevention Workshop, an 8 week class starts Feb. 22.
Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. Mount Auburn Hospital recognizes this concern and has developed its award-winning program to help patients prevent and manage their falls, while staying or becoming more active.
This winter, the hospital is pleased to present the A Matter of Balance workshop, an eight-week group focused on learning to view falls as controllable. Participants will set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and learn exercises to increase strength and balance.
The workshops are every Monday for 8 weeks from 9-11 a.m. starting on Feb. 22, 2016 at Mount Auburn Hospital, 330 Mount Auburn St., Cambridge.
This course is free to patients. Registration is required for this class. To enroll, contact Community Health at 617-499-5625.
