A Matter of Balance Course

Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 12 noon, January 30 through March 26 (no class on March 12).

Do you have concerns about falling? Many older adults restrict their activities out of fear of falling. “A Matter of Balance” is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels. This program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. You will learn to: view falls as controllable; set goals for increasing activity; make changes to reduce fall risks at home; and exercise to increase strength and balance. This class will be taught by Senior Nursing students from Fairfield University under the supervision of Monica Wheeler, MSN, RN, St. Anthony’s parishioner and Adjunct Professor at the University’s School of Nursing. Program is free, but registration is required. Contact the par- ish office (203-259-0358 or at office@stanthonyffld.org) for further information or to register.
