_______________________________________________________________

This workshop has been created for older adults who currently live independently, who may have had a fall, are afraid of falling, have a balance problem, or want to know more about balance and fall prevention.

It is a six-week workshop focusing on education, with guest experts from the areas of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Podiatry, Psychology, and Tai Chi. The workshop will include physical exercise for strength and balance.

The six-week workshop will be held on Tuesdays from 1 - 2:30 pm at the Flagler Health+ Wellness Center. There is a $20 dollar one-time registration fee.

CRITERIA

  • Can you walk on your own (use of a cane is permitted)?
  • Can you bathe, dress, and use the restroom by yourself?
  • Can you participate safely in group exercise, this includes seated and standing exercises?
  • Can you follow through with a written exercise program that you will take home?
  • Do you leave your home for shopping, dining, and social participation?

If you answered NO to any of the above questions then this group learning environment is not best suited for your needs. You still can seek help with your balance through Physical Therapy sessions, or one-on-one care. If interested, please find a balance specialist near you or call Flagler Health+ Physical Therapy at 904.819.4774.

For more information on upcoming workshops, or to register, call 904.819.4774.
