Staying STEADI: A community-based exercise and falls prevention program for older adults (Studio)

Join licensed physical therapist and Board-Certified Geriatric Specialist, Tami DeAngelis, for this evidence-based course incorporating resources from the CDC’s STEADI Initiative. This program is designed for older adults who are living in the community and are at risk for falls or have balance problems. The eight-week class includes a comprehensive approach for fall prevention including education, strengthening, balance, and flexibility exercises. This class is designed not to make participants fall-proof, but fall-prepared. A must-take for any older
adult looking to stay independent as they age! For safety reasons, this class may not be appropriate for those who are currently experiencing falls. Please contact us if you are unsure whether this class is appropriate for you.
