The Florida Senior Center is offering two programs for Northern Berkshire seniors that have proven to be effective in assisting seniors of all ages with fall prevention. Each program runs for eight weeks. Both require prior registration.
"Matter of Balance" will be offered from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursdays starting Sept. 5. Seniors learn how to identify and decrease their fears and risks of falling.
The cost for the eight sessions is $8, payable at the time of registration. This fee covers the cost of the Participant Handbook and light refreshments.
"Chair Assisted Tai Chi for Healthy Aging" begins Friday, Sept. 6, from 10 to 11 a.m. This adaptation of Tai Chi improves balance, mobility, flexibility, and coordination.
