McMinnville Warren County Senior Center and NHC will be offering a Stepping On workshop series beginning Oct. 17 at NHC Healthcare, 928 Old Smithville Highway.Stepping On is a seven-week workshop program for independent community-dwelling older adults who have fallen, are at risk of falling, or have a fear of falling. One in three adults age 65 and over fall each year and the physical, financial and emotional costs can be devastating. But falls are not a normal part of the aging process and can be prevented.During the workshop, participants receive support from trained leaders and other workshop participants, learn and practice strength and balance exercises and learn how medications, vision, safe footwear and home modifications can affect their risk of falls.The goal is to help people better manage their own risk of falls and take steps on their own to prevent falls.
