Fall-prevention class in Tampa

Marion County De­partment on Aging will offer a free six-week fall-prevention class from 9:30-11:30 a.m. starting Thursday, Sept. 15, in the Tampa Senior Center.

This award-winning program is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults who are concerned about falls.

Participation will help older people maintain independence and give them confidence in their mobility so they are able to undertake everyday activities safely and without risk of falling.

The program covers a range of issues, including falls and risk, strength and balance exercises, home hazards, safe footwear, vision and falls, safety in public places, community mobility, coping after a fall, and how to initiate a medication review.

If interested, contact MCDA at 620-382-3580.
