Falls Prevention Workshop – Stepping On @ New Glarus Home- Dining Center
Jun 28 @ 1:30 pm – Aug 9 @ 3:30 pm

Falls Prevention Workshop in Green County- Stepping On

Falls prevention

 

Falling is very common; it can result in injury and can shake your confidence.  The threat of falling can be a barrier to safely doing all the things you want to do at home and in the community. In fact, more than one-third of all people age 65 and older fall each year.

 

Stepping On’s main goal is to empower older adults who have fallen or who have a fear of falling to recognize and carry out health behaviors that reduce their risk of falls.  The program is designed to assist older adults to take control of their falls risk, explore different coping behaviors and encourage follow-through of safety strategies in everyday life.

 

The program is offered in a two-hour session once a week for seven weeks, followed by a home visit or phone call to each participant after the seven sessions, and a booster session three months later.  Classes are usually 10 to 15 older adults who have fallen or worry about falling.  Stepping On Leaders invite volunteer Guest Experts in content areas of exercise, vision, medications, and community safety to lead segments within different sessions.

 

Stepping On meets weekly for seven weeks for 2 hours.  New participants may only join week 1 and 2.

 

To sign up or for more information, please call the Aging & Disability Resource Center at 608-328-9499.
