Fall Prevention Class

The Franklin Health Department invites residents 60 and older to participate in a 7-week course, "Stepping On". This evidence-based class helps seniors to reduce their risk for falls by increasing their strength and improving their sense of balance.  

Falls are not an inevitable part of aging. There are lifestyle changes that can be made to reduce the risk of falling and at the same time increase your self-confidence in situations where you are at risk of falling.  Class topics will address reducing your risk of falling through the use of exercises, home safety, medication review with physician, the importance of regular vision exams, and mobility in the community.  

Take the "Rate Your Risk For Falling Quiz" to see if the "Stepping On" class is right for you.

Dates: 2018 dates to be determined yet.
Location:  To be determined for 2018 session.

The program is free; however, there is a refundable $20 deposit for the use of a weight during the 7-week program.  

This program is open to all residents of Franklin.  Class size is limited.  To register, please call the Franklin Health Department at 425-9101.
