Atlantic General Holds Falls Prevention Class
Atlantic General Hospital’s Healthy Happenings program is offering
its next Stepping On class to the community beginning April 9. Stepping
On is a well-researched falls prevention program, and it’s free
to all who want to participate.
The prevention of falls is vital to maintaining personal independence.
Older people understand that the threat of a fall can be a barrier to
safely doing all the things they want to do at home and in their community.
The Stepping On workshop meets for two hours a week for seven weeks, teaching
participants about improving muscle strength and balance and avoiding
hazards that could lead to falls.
