Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham County Council on Aging has scheduled an eight-week program, A Matter of Balance, to help seniors address concerns about falling.

According to the Council, people who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. The program is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.

The program will be held on Tuesdays starting Sept. 2 from 1-3 pm. The classes are free to the public and will be held at the Western Chatham Senior Center located at 112 Village Lake Road in Siler City.

For more information or to register contact Kay Maddox at 919-742-3975 or Jennifer Pleasants at 919-560-6815. Class size is limited, so please call to reserve your space.
