LRC Balance Program 

Did you know one in three people age 65 and older fall each year?  Those numbers increase to one in two people at the age of 80.  Join us, not the statistics.  The SMH Physical Rehabilitation department offers a monthly Balance Program, Staying on Your Feet, for all adults ages 60 and older. 

Staying on Your Feet will help you learn how to keep your balance and stay fit.  This free one-time class includes a balance screening, we will take your blood pressure, measure your leg strength, time you as you walk, and time your standing balance.  We will also provide education on ways to stay well.  Our staff will share ways to stay safe in your home, and how to communicate effectively with your doctor. 

Classes are held the second Thursday of every month from 9:30 -11:30am at the Harper Conference Center in the Ripley Medical Office Building (193 Main Street) in Norway.  There is no fee for this one-time course.  For more information or to register call please call 207-744-6160 or visit us online at www.wmhcc.org/smhrehab.
