Department on Aging offering fall prevention classes

Marion County Department on Aging will teach two fall prevention classes from April through May — “Matter of Balance” and “Stepping On.”

Both classes aim to help those afraid of falling, who feel unsafe walking on uneven surfaces, or that have difficulty climbing stairs and getting up safely from the floor.

“Stepping On” will go from 2 to 4 p.m. every Thursday beginning April 3 and ending May 15 at the Marion Family Physician basement conference room. The class costs $12.

“Matter of Balance” will run from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesdays from April 9 to May 28 in the activity room in Hilltop Manor. The class also costs $12.

For more information on classes, call the department on aging at (620) 382-3580.
