Both workshops will be at the Chambersburg YMCA.
The program aims to keep adults ages 55 and older on their feet and out of hospitals and/or nursing facilities.
Participants will learn how to create a safer home, do balancing exercises, build strength and more in a relaxed environment.
Registration is limited to 30 participants and is now open. Upon registration at the front desk of the Chambersburg YMCA, participants will fill out a healthy steps registration questionnaire, which will help discover health conditions people have that could lead to falls.
