Stepping On

BRMH Builds Confidence and Reduces Falls for Older Adults

02/12/2019

Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) will host the Stepping On program. Participants learn why they fall and how to prevent falls. This program includes strength and balance exercises, home safety tips and a medication review. 

Holly Freeman, BRMH Occupational Therapist, shares about the program. “Participants will see fall prevention products. They will leave with more strength, better balance, and confidence in independent living.” This class is ideal for people who walk and are living on their own. Research shows, this program can reduce the chance of falling by thirty-one percent.

Stepping On will be held on Tuesdays, March 26 - May 7, 2019, from 9:30 am – 11:30 am at the Lunda Community Center.

For more information and to register for the program, call 715-284-1330.
