The Lahey Clinic program "A Matter of Balance" is geared toward helping seniors "manage falls [while] increasing activity levels."

According to Be Well Woburn, the city's organization dedicated to improving residents' health and wellness, the class will help seniors: 

  • view falls as controllable;
  • set goals for increasing activity;
  • make changes to reduce fall risks at home; and
  • exercise to increase strength and balance.

If you're not sure if you should attend, Be Well Woburn suggests the class is for:

  • anyone concerned about falls;
  • anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength;
  • anyone who has fallen in the past; and
  • anyone who has restricted activities because of falling concerns.

The program will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Senior Center and is sponsored by Be Well Woburn.
