The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) will be offering FREE Stepping On (falls prevention) workshops series in North Fond du Lac and Ripon area.

The Ripon workshop will begin on July 30 to September 10 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Ripon Senior Center, 100 Jackson Street. The North Fond du Lac workshop will begin on July 31 - September 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the North Fond du Lac Community Center, 280 Garfield Street.

Stepping On is a seven-week workshop program for independent community-dwelling older adults who have fallen, are at risk of falling or who have a fear of falling.

One in three adults age 65 and over fall each year and the physical, financial and emotional costs can be devastating. But falls are not a normal part of the aging process and can be prevented.

During the workshop, participants receive support from trained leaders and other workshop participants, learn and practice strength and balance exercises and learn how medications, vision, safe footwear and home modifications can affect their risk of falls.

Past participants report much increased confidence in the steps they have taken and will continue to practice to reduce their risk of falls.

To register or for more information for the upcoming Stepping On workshop, contact the ADRC at 920-929-3466.

Space is limited.
