Stepping On: FREE Fall Prevention Workshop

July 19 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Don’t let a fall cramp your style!

One in four people age 65 or older have a fall each year. You don’t have to be one of them.

Join NMC for a seven week course on fall prevention! You’ll meet every Friday, from July 19 to August 30, at Trinity Heights United Methodist Church in Newton.

Stepping on can help you avoid a dangerous and costly fall so you can keep doing the things you love. In just seven weeks, you’ll learn:

  • To identify and remove or avoid fall hazards in your home and outside
  • How vision, hearing, medication and footwear affect your risk of falling
  • Strength and balance exercises you can adapt to your individual level
  • To get back on your feet the right way if you do fall

To register, call NMC at (316) 804-6222 or fill out the registration form. Registration deadline in July 5.

Free for the first 20 participants. Made possible through a grant from Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
