New Clearfield County program to benefit older adults in the area.
The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc. will host an eight-week program called A Matter of Balance, starting November 1.
The program acknowledges the risk of falling, but highlights coping strategies to reduce this fear.
Strategies include promoting the view that falls and fear of falling is controllable, setting goals for increased activity, changing the environment to avoid falls, and promoting exercise for strength and balance.
Classes will be held at the Joseph & Elizabeth Shaw Library in Clearfield and will run Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Enrollment is required. For more information, call 765-2696, ext. 312.
