Given the continuing rise of Covid cases, effective 1/11/22, Generations will be closed to the public for the remainder of January. Our intention is to re-open to the public on February 1.
The Montgomery County Office of Senior Services is offering a virtual (Zoom™) version of The Pennsylvania Department of Aging's fall risk screening and prevention program this winter.
The free program is offered to Generations Participants who are 60 years of age and older. The program is designed to raise awareness of falls, introduce steps on how to reduce falls, improve overall health, and provide referrals and resources.
The program is taught by Certified Workshop Leaders and consists of two workshops, approximately 2-hours each in length, held on Wednesday February 9 and Friday February 11, both from 9:30-11:30am.
Healthy Steps for Older Adults (HSOA) addresses many common causes of falls: environmental safety; balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance exercises; nutrition; foot health; sensory deficits (vision/hearing); side effects of medication; health status/disease states, including substance use; the need to maintain an active lifestyle; social connectedness; and mental/spiritual well-being.
This free program will be held virtually. Participants should have access to email and the free app Zoom™ (See p. 9 for technology training and assistance). Registration is required by January 24. To register for this program, please fill out the registration form below:
