Chatham Council on Aging offers program on avoiding falls

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.
