McLaren Wellness Program offers balance classes

FLINT — McLaren’s Wellness Program offers “A Matter of Balance” classes to help anyone who has concerns about falling. Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities and the classes are an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.

The program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. During the program, participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home and exercise to increase strength and balance.

Those who should attend are anyone concerned about falls, anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength, anyone who has fallen in the past or anyone who has restricted activities because of falling concerns.

The classes are held 1-3 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at McLaren Physical Therapy-Bristol Pace, G-4466 W. Bristol Rd., in the third-floor conference room. The eight sessions cost $40 and class size is limited.
Registration is required in advance by calling 810-342-5558. — N.B.
