Maintaining health and fitness as we get older is so important. Staying active helps us to not only keep doing the things we want to do but also helps with preventing and managing chronic conditions and decreases our risk for a fall. Join us for an informative presentation on how to incorporate safe and effective exercises into your daily life. The presentation will include sample exercises (that you can do at home!) and practical strategies for falls prevention and other tips to reduce your risk for a fall.
