The Parker County office of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, in cooperation with The North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging, will conduct “A Matter of Balance” fall prevention series. The free, eight lesson, two hour classes will take place on Sept. 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28, Oct. 3 & 5.
The classes will be from 10 a.m. – noon at the Parker County Agricultural Service Center in Weatherford, located at 604 North Main.
A Matter of Balance is a nationally recognized program that helps older adults reduce the risk of devastating falls. The classes will include lessons on exploring thoughts and concerns of falling and there will be information on ways to increase strength and balance through exercise. The series will also help individuals identify ways to reduce the risk of falls and help older adults protect themselves and recover if they do fall.
There is a limited number of participants allowed for each class. For more information or to register for “A Matter of Balance” class in September, call the Parker County Extension Office at 817-598-6168.
