Stepping On 

Building Confidence, Reducing Falls

Please join us for this 7-week workshop series to learn important exercises and strategies to prevent falls.

What is Stepping On?

Stepping On is a program that has been researched and proven to reduce falls in older people. It consists of a workshop that meets for two hours a week for seven weeks.

Workshops are led by two trained Stepping On professionals who partner to provide participants with a quality adult learning environment. In addition, local guest experts provide information on exercise, vision, safety, and medications.

Topics include:

  • Simple and fun balance and strength training 
  • The role vision plays in keeping your balance 
  •  How medications can contribute to falls 
  •  Ways to keep from falling when out in your community 
  •  What to look for in safe footwear 
  •  How to eliminate fall hazards from your home

This workshop meets from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM every Thursday, from February 10th to March 24th, 2022, via UI Zoom Platform.  Registrants will be emailed the Zoom link two weeks before the class begins.
