Serious falls are not an inevitable part of aging. “A Matter of Balance” is an eight-week class designed to increase physical activity and reduce concerns about falls. The award-winning program for older adults emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls, reduce fall risks and increase activity levels. This collaborative program targets a significant health and safety concern in Cobb. Injuries from falls are a top reason county residents visit hospital emergency rooms.
Cobb Senior Services staff is hosting the Aug. 5-Sept. 23 class in partnership with the Cobb County Public Library System. Two Cobb librarians will lead the class as trained coaches. It will be held once a week, from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays, and begins Wednesday, Aug. 5. The class will take place at West Cobb Senior Center, 4915 Dallas Highway, Marietta. The program fee is $30.
