Bayhealth is offering a free program for older adults designed to reduce the risk of falls and increase physical activity.

A Matter of Balance is a series of eight weekly classes offered from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursdays beginning Sept. 7 and ending Oct. 26 at Bayhealth Milford Memorial, Conference Rooms A and B, 21 West Clarke Ave.

A Matter of Balance uses trained volunteer coaches to teach participants how to overcome a fear of falling, increase strength and balance and improve their environment. The class is geared toward anyone who has fallen in the past, anyone who has restricted activities because of falling concerns and anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength.

The program is free, but registration is required. To register, visit or call 744-7135.
