Free Course: A Matter of Balance
CLIFTON, NJ – The Clifton Health Department and NORWESCAP will be offering a FREE eight-week course called “A Matter of Balance” that will run every Tuesday, beginning January 10th, 2017 through February 28th, 2017. Classes will be held at the Clifton Public Library, located at 292 Piaget Ave, in Community Room A.  Each class will run from 1 pm-3 pm.  Registration is required–please call the Clifton Health Department at 973-470-5773 to register.  Please call as soon as possible, as space is limited.  This course is open to Clifton and Little Falls residents only.  This program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls.  You will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and exercise to improve strength and balance.  You should attend if you are concerned about falls, interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength, have fallen in the past, and if you restrict activities because of falling concerns. This program is based on Fear of Falling: A Matter of Balance, used and adapted by permission of Boston University. According to the CDC, one in three older people fall each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling one time doubles your chances of falling again.  Many falls do not cause injuries, but one out of five falls does cause a serious injury, such as a broken bone or a head injury. These injuries can make it hard for a person to get around, perform everyday activities, or live on their own.  Many people who fall, even if they are not injured, become afraid of falling. This fear may cause a person to cut down on their everyday activities. When a person is less active, they become weaker and this increases their chances of falling.  Falls can be prevented with strength and balance exercises. Please call the Clifton Health Department at 973-470-5773 to register or for more information about this free screening. The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
