The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center will be offering a free Matter of Balance class beginning Wednesday, February 2, 12:30-2:00 pm, at the Senior Center.

Instructors Toshiko Aramaki and Heidi Mair lead this program that helps seniors learn how to maintain balance, understand why it can be an issue, and enjoy some easy exercises that improve balance skills. There will also discussion about the cause for balance problems, including the use of medications.

The class will be held February 2 through March 23. Participants need to plan on attending all sessions in order to get maximum benefit from the instruction.

Funding for the classes is provided through a special grant procured by the Shoreline Fire Department. It has been shown that an overwhelming number of 9-1-1 calls are for seniors who have had a fall; the goal is to help reduce that number. The results of serious injury from falls can affect a person's ability to maintain independence and overall good health.

To sign up for the class call the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center at 206-365-1536, during business hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, or check in-person at the Senior Center Front Desk.

Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is located at 18560 1st AVE NE, #1, the southern-most building for the Shoreline Center, in Shoreline.
